Have you ever wanted to write a screenplay, but have been held back because of the fact that screenplay writing software is EXPENSIVE?
In order to get ANYbody to look at your screenplay, it has to be formatted correctly. There are conventions for character dialogue and for screen directions, there are conventions for headers and footers … and if you don’t have them right, industry insiders will just throw your masterpiece onto the scrap heap without even reading the first line.
There are dozens of screenplay writing software packages that will help you do the job. Problem is many of them are too expensive for someone who just wants to give it a try. For example, Final Draft sells for $200US, Dramatica Pro sells for up to $269US.
So blow me AWAY when Johnny C. Johnson of Mindstar Productions contacted me with the news that Mindstar is GIVING AWAY their formatting software for FREE $0.00 Nadda Nothing. This is a FULLY FUNCTIONAL program. No trial, no downgraded functions. The FULL meal deal.
I asked Johnny why they were giving it away. “Because we are in the business of making productions work, and without a script, there’s often no production!”
GO for it. Get it now. These guys are nuts and may soon realize it and start charging.
ENJOY … and tell Johnny that I sent you!
