If you want to sell a screenplay to Hollywood, it has to be in the proper format

Write a script that's not properly formatted and Hollywood might take one look at it and throw it in the trash!

What if...

I could  tell you what I consider to be the best screenwriting software for new screenwriters?


AND...

That software was FREE TO USE for your first three screenplays?


AND...

I could teach you how to use your software and teach you screenplay format...


AT THE SAME TIME!

In minutes, you could be learning screenplay format by typing assignments into my favorite formatting software!

New on-line video course:

I can take you from "Zero," knowing nothing about how to format a script, to being a "Boss," FAST!

Get my pick for "Best Screenplay Formatting Software"

The cloud-based version is FREE for your first three screenplays!

It handles screenplay notes in the way I prefer, is user-friendly and the outlining feature is AMAZING. This replaced the TWO software programs I was using - one to outline and one to format the script. It was designed by a WRITER and that's why it's my dream software come true! You don't have to spend a dime beyond the price of the course to start typing in script software that you will love.

Word Dancer

I'm a screenwriter living in Los Angeles who won the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. My work has been mentioned in the New York Times, Fade In and W Magazine. I've sold several options and had Academy Award-winning actors attached to my projects. I read over 450 screenplays a year from both amateurs and professionals. I won the most prestigious screenplay competition in the world after only screenwriting for less than TWO YEARS and without going to film school or knowing anyone in Hollywood. I can help you learn screenwriting FAST! I made this course because this is what I wish were available when I first started.
