Celtx Your Complete Screenwriting Software

February 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

I wrote Corporate Assassin episode one on Apple’s Pages. They had a template for a screenplay. I messed around with it and it was literally a nightmare. I couldn’t figure out the keystroke shortcuts, if they have any to begin with. So I had to copy each section and paste it where I wanted it. Not a good way to continue the creative process.

So I was chatting with a talented filmmaking friend, Ajit Prem, and he suggested Celtx. Googled them and downloaded it and wow what a great program for filmmakers. Check out the specs.

Celtx has 5 dedicated industry standard editors for writing:

  • Screenplays
  • AV scripts, including Documentaries, Advertisements and Music Videos
  • Audio Plays, including Radio Plays and Podcasts
  • Theatre Plays (International and US standard)
  • Plain Text

Each editor has all of the features writers need to keep their fingers moving, like intuitive formatting, text auto-complete, dual column dialog, pagination, script styles, CAPS selection, scene management, spellchecker, embedded notes, find and replace, and PDF generation.

Check out the screenshot. Hell go ahead and download it. It’s free and a great resource. But do give back $omething keep these guys around for awhile.

    We’ve been using Celtx for all our scripting for the last couple months. Love it! There are a couple things on my wish list, but for every day work, it is pretty solid!
