Writing scripts for film, television, and theater is usually a time-consuming task. There are many elements in a script (i.e. scene headings, character names, dialogue, scene breaks, etc.) that must be correctly placed in your script. Following these conventions is essential in making sure your script is receiving proper attention from agents, producers, and contest judges. Screenwriter works by your side, automatically formatting action, character name, dialogue, and other elements as you write your script.

Editorial Review

Write screenplays! Collaborate with your partner! Hear your script perf ormed! Movie Magic Screenwriter won't find you an agent or sell your work, but it enables point-and-poke writers to create an acceptable-looking script, and h as enough added goodies to keep an aspiring Hollywood hotshot entertained.

This program automatically formats your script, putting character names, scene headings, and action in the appropriate places. It also does a good job of gues sing what you want once you've started writing: filling in a character's name a fter you've hit the first letter or automatically attending to details such as pagination, MOREs, and other script-writing tasks.

Program creators added templates from actual television-show scripts, so writer s can get a glimpse of formatting for everything from Friends to King of the Hi ll, an invaluable tool for writing spec scripts or just peeking into the workin g mechanisms of Tinseltown. There are 50 partial scripts in all. Extra bonus--u se this program to name your baby after you're done writing a masterpiece. Movi e Magic Screenwriter contains the most comprehensive name bank we've ever seen: first names from Abramo to Zola, and every surname imaginable.

This program also allows online collaboration, via voice or text, and can publi sh scripts on the Internet. There's a production-scheduling function and revisi on options should your work make it into production. Finally, one old-fashioned touch that we found rather charming in this high-tech, "does everything for yo u" screenwriting program: it can print directly onto index cards (provided) for writers who prefer to order their scenes like they did in the good old days be fore computers did everything for us. --Anne Erickson
