Tech Tip Fridays – Screenwriting Software at Prolost.com
I’m becoming more and more involved in the screenwriting process as a director myself (mostly revisions – I let the pros write the scripts!) and I own Final Draft. It’s such an industry standard piece of software that it’s fair to say that it’s pretty much a “must own” for anyone involved in the development process of a script.
I also found Stu’s suggestion of Scrivener and it’s use of note cards to be pretty fantastic. Basically it digitally mimics the way most screenwriters / directors / producers I know work. When you walk into their offices it’s not uncommon to find walls full of dozens if not hundreds notecards, photographs, reference material setup in some sort of hierarchy – so that they can visualize and analyze the building blocks of their screenplays and the progression of the characters, etc. I guess this is the digital version of that and I’m going to purchase Scrivener in a few seconds after I hit post… for now – why don’t you all go over to to the Prolost blog to here the skinny from the man himself.
