Literature

  • The literature list records information that has appeared in print media which is specific to one title. For corresponding information specific to people, see the publicity portions of the biography list.
  • The list is separated into the following categories:
  • Adaptation

  • This is the bibliographical information of the adaptation of the literary source (only if published) -> adaptation of novel, play, short story. Use this for sources that are very loosely adapted (e.g., 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) is loosely based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew; O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) is loosely based on The Odyssey). Direct adaptations should go under novel (regardless of their format).
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Book

  • This is a monographic book related to this film production (only). Use this for book-length making-of information; for articles, use "production protocol".
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Critical Review

  • Reviews of this specific film production in printed media (in newspapers, magazines, non-monographic books).
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Essay

  • Essays related specially to this particular film production (in newspapers, magazines, non-monographic books).
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Interview

  • Interviews of cast and crew of this film production and related to this specific film production.
  • The interview should be almost exclusively about the film; if the interview is focused on a single person and strays from the topic of a single film, it should be sent as a biographical interview for the person instead.
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Novel

  • Bibliographical information of the original literary source (only if published): original novel, theatrical play, short story. This should be used for straightforward adaptations; for looser adaptations, use "adaptation" instead.
  • Note that this list is for describing the publication details of the source; the nature of the source (novel, short story, play, etc.) belongs in the relevant source material credit of the writers list.
  • This category is also used for the novelization of a film.
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Production Protocol

  • Protocol of production process of this film -> "on location"-literature. Use this for, e.g., magazine articles on the making of a movie; for books, use "book" instead.
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Script

  • Bibliographical information of the original screenplay/teleplay (only if published). Also original film text.
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • Other

  • Bibliographical information of literature of this production that doesn't fit any of the other categories.
  • The author name should be entered in the Last, First format.
  • You may add the publisher's address if the published material is hard to get in book shops or libraries. You may also add an English translation of the title or source if the literature information is in another language.
