Putting narration in a YA adaptation that is an action film! Example: “TOMORROW, WHEN THE WAR BEGAN”.
Narration brings our attention to the fact that someone is narrating from the future. Action is about tension, what will happen next, who will survive! Yes, the book was first person diary but for god’s sake you are making an action film! Know your genre!
Refer to my rule number 3 – just leave it out!
