If you intend to submit work to the BBC in the UK, look no further, this is the reason Practical Scriptwriter was developed. If you intend to submit to US institutions such as Sundance, Amazon Studios or Hollywood, we have a 55 line screenplay format designed to their requirements. Here's a list of the script formats we support.
Producing a finished script involves several distinct types of work:
Practical Scriptwriter provides flexible, easy to use tools to help in all these areas, in one package.
One of the main benefits of using the software is that your script content is separated from the formatting information, so you can print your script as a Stageplay or TV Episode or a Screenplay.
Obviously the content of a Radio Play is far different from a Screenplay, so you do have to commit to a particular format at some stage. But imagine adapting a Screenplay to another format. This software does at least half of the work automatically, you are free to concentrate on the important things.
Ease of use is another strong feature. During development we have had input from professional writers, school children and complete beginners. We can confidently say our software is easy to use.
Imagine you want to just write a single page of a script. You will be able to write the dialogue and stage directions and print out an industry standard formatted script page in minutes. With just a few mouse clicks you can print the same page as a Screenplay, TV Show Episode, Radio Play or Stage Play.
Practical Scriptwriter is designed from the ground up to provide writers with an easy to use tool that removes the burden of formatting and reformatting a script. Traditional scriptwriting software products are mainly word processors with a few extra functions. They all get the job done so the choice is purely how it fits the way you work.
