About Us

Our mission is to partner with authors. The art of novel writing and screenwriting are entirely different disciplines. While a novel enjoys the luxury of internal ruminations, spot-on exposition and dramatic asides, film must "show" a story rather than tell it. Sight and sound are rendered before the audience's eyes in a communal setting, whereas in a novel, the story unfolds across the larger canvas of an individual's imagination.

Franklin 500 seeks to transfer the all-important spirit of a novel, not just the plot and characters, into a winning cinematic experience. We understand the difference between reading and viewing experiences and recognize the importance in preserving an author's vision while crafting compelling cinema.

"Drama is life with the dull bits cut out."

- Alfred Hitchcock
