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.
