On my Mac/Windows PC…Celtx Scriptwriting Software

Celtx Scriptwriting Software

It is said that everyone in Los Angeles has a script to sell, so the need for a program like Celtx is great. I first came across this free scriptwriting software a few years ago when I was looking for an alternative to the very expensive and heavily copy-protected programs that were currently in use on most productions. When you are just starting out, paying $400-$500 for a scriptwriting program could be very difficult.

Since that time, Celtx has branched out into premium services, including cloud access and collaboration tools, pre-planning and storyboarding tools and a commercial version of the product. While I don't write in script format a lot, my wide -- a college professor and teacher of television and movie writing -- regularly recommends it as a free alternative for her students.

Celtx also now offers a cloud-version of Celtx that works directly in your web browser as well as iPhone, iPad and Android apps.

From the Celtx Web Site...

"Celtx puts powerful writing, pre-visualisation and productivity tools right at your fingertips, putting you in control of how your story takes shape.

Write scripts, store creative files and collaborate with partners."
