Movie Outline is innovative screenplay writing software that was designed by a produced writer to help you develop your film story, characters and structure, and professionally format your script. It uses the simple technique of “step-outlining” to create your outline and screenplay scene by scene and reference breakdowns of successful Hollywood movies in the same genre side by side with your own project. With Movie Outline you can develop character profiles, character arcs and structure your narrative using pre-defined color-coded structure templates such as the classic “3 Act Structure” or “The Hero’s Journey”. You can also customize these templates and create your own to suit your own writing methodology. Simply put, Movie Outline is the ultimate writer’s tool, taking your story from an idea to a final draft.
More than 120 feature-length movies have been produced from writers and scripts found through InkTip. So, whether you’ve just finished writing your first movie script, or you have a library of completed screenplays, InkTip can help you sell your script.

Customers receive a 2-3 page entertainment industry standard report (“coverage”) that breaks down the material into feature film or television marketability components. Studio executives and producers look at these reports when deciding which projects should be developed further and eventually “greenlit.” Writers should use the reports to: 1) submit along with their query letters to potential buyers if they receive a “Recommend” or even a “Consider” stamp of approval, and 2) to uncover their material’s strengths and weaknesses, so that any areas for improvement can be addressed before submitting the material to potential buyers.
