Celtx - Integrated Media Pre-Production

celtxlogo Thanks to Todd bragging about a Mac only scripting tool (which, admitting looks great) I stumbled on a really awesome program called 'celtx'.

Basically, it enables me to write my stories (whether novel or comic scripts - or both) and it will help me to format it correctly. The awesome thing is it also allows me to add things like character descriptions and all that jazz and helps me to really flow in one program so I don't have 100 programs open which often causes me to slow way the frick down in my writing.

Oh, and it's FREE - which means it's extra freakin awesome.

I've yet to delve into the full sweetness of this program ... but just look at these features!

Celtx is the world's first all-in-one media pre-production software. It has everything you need to take your story from concept to production. Celtx replaces 'paper, pen & binder' pre-production with a digital approach that's more complete, simpler to work with, and easier to share.

Multi-Media Friendly
Celtx helps you pre-produce all types of media - film, video, documentary, theater, machinima, comics, advertising, gaming, music video, radio, podcasts, videocasts, and however else you choose to tell your story.

Unlike script writing software, you can use Celtx for the entire pre-production process - write scripts, storyboard scenes and sequences, develop characters, breakdown & tag elements, schedule production, and prepare detailed and informative production reports for cast and crew.

Fully Integrated
Celtx is designed to help your entire production team work together on a single, easy to share project file - eliminating the confusion of multiple project files, and the need for 'paper and binder'.

World Community of Media Creators
More than 250,000 media creators in 160 countries create with Celtx in over 20 different languages. Celtx is used by independent filmmakers and studio professionals, and by students in over 1,400 universities and film schools - many that have adopted Celtx for teaching and class work submission.

The Best of The Desktop & The Internet
Celtx combines the best of a desktop and Internet working environment to give you the ultimate in flexibility. The free Celtx desktop application gives you total writing fluidity and complete control of your project. And, at your option, you can add in powerful, secure web services for precise script formatting, back-up, advanced collaboration, and sharing.
