Frank and Stein. Edition No. 1

Are you a scientist with a flair for creative writing, but not sure of where to begin? Are you an aspiring science fiction screenwriter out to discover what makes a film or television production successful? If so, than this book is a must. Uninspired by traditional research, Dr Planitz sought a creative alternative to express her scientific knowledge. She turned to creative writing, believing that her research background and active imagination were sufficient to produce a screenplay. She was wrong. In this book, Dr Planitz describes candidly the hurdles that she—as novice writer—faced. She sheds light on screenwriting approaches that hindered, and those that eventually inspired her screenplay “Frank and Stein”. The full script is included to demonstrate how science/global economic issues can be turned into a fictional work. “Frank and Stein” stimulates, speculates, and most importantly, takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride into another world. You too can create and delight an audience with creative work. But read this book first and discover what lies ahead. Learning from someone else’s mistakes will save you many hours in the long run.
