Author Learning Center, the premier online author education resource for writers engaged in any stage of the story development or book marketing process, today announced Morris Ruskin, CEO of Shoreline Entertainment and prolific producer of several critically acclaimed films including “Glengarry Glen Ross” will be featured on the site in a series of informative and inspiring video interviews.

“Morris Ruskin—Routes of Adaptation: Animation,” is the first of several videos in which Ruskin deconstructs his methods for producing Hollywood films. In this video, Ruskin discusses why he chose to adapt the comic book series, “The Living Corpse” into an animated film.

“We were going to do [‘The Living Corpse’] as a live-action film, and the director, Justin Ritter, said, ‘I really want to do animation,’” said Ruskin. “So I sort of experienced the difference between a live-action movie and an animated film just by going through the process of developing the script into an animated film. In animation, you can get away with a lot more than in live action—you can do more outrageous things that are just not possible with live action.” To watch the entire interview, click here:

“Morris Ruskin brings unique expertise to the Author Learning Center as both an award-winning movie producer and the CEO of a notable Hollywood production company,” said Keith Ogorek, senior vice-president of marketing at Author Solutions, Inc. “Understanding what goes into producing a movie is very important to authors interested in writing directly for the big screen or adapting their finished books. Access to that type of information is valuable and is what makes the Author Learning Center the best available educational resource for authors.”

Ruskin joins Stan Lee, Elmore Leonard, Mitch Albom and Victor Villasenor as one of many A-list authors interviewed by the Author Learning Center. Over the next few months, new content will be available from other publishing industry leaders, including Pete Nikolai.
