The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious; the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. —Albert Einstein
What is ScriptPhD.com?
Founded in May, 2009 by scientist and creative writer Jovana J. Grbić, ScriptPhD.com is the first all-inclusive outlet covering science and technology across the spectrum of entertainment, media and pop culture. We’re a different kind of blog because we proudly view science and technology from a unique perspective. We want to delve into the deepest corners of television and film to explore portrayal of science and scientists. We want to know what makes the creative minds behind the best science advertising campaigns in the world tick. We want to start conversations that reverberate about the issues and technology that affect our lives and world today. Above all else, ScriptPhD.com seeks to entertain and educate an audience hungry for sophisticated mainstream science content. More broadly, we want to create an online interface for the scientific, entertainment and media communities—a place to gain insight into each other’s worlds while interacting on an accessible platform.
Embracing a fresh multi-media approach, our formats range from video pieces to audio podcasts to more traditional written articles, reviews and interviews. We’ve even been known to step outside the ScriptPhD Lab to cover geeky gatherings such as Comic-Con, the World Science Festival, and lecture panels that catch our attention. Under the leadership of head writer and editor Jovana J. Grbić, ScriptPhD.com has boasted contributions from a range of accomplished recurring and guest authors, including screenwriters, scientists, professors, filmmakers, journalists, and entertainment consultants. We look forward to welcoming more bright writers and creative talent as we continue to burgeon and evolve.
Since our launch, ScriptPhD.com’s impact has resonated beyond the digital sphere and into the entertainment/media industries. From Warner Brothers tweeting ScriptPhD’s review of Hubble IMAX as the official face of the movie to Hollywood’s Writers Guild of America naming ScriptPhD.com to their April 2010 hotlist for outstanding new media content, our fervent dedication to excel and inform has been rewarded with positive recognition from our colleagues, peers, and readers alike.
