Thoughts on how Sally Potter used the visual medium of film to translate Virginia Wolf's literary exploration of gender, which is given to us largely through Orlando's internalised thought, into the screen.
The purpose of this pathway is to 'reflect upon and illustrate' the process of adapting Orlando.
The focus here is on the nature of design in adaptation. One example includes key aspects such as location from pre-production sketches to how the final set looks in production, and how this relates to the words found in Woolf's novel. Additionally it's interesting to note the differences in adaptation across Orlando's 400 year journey.
