ScreenplayFest-MOVIE OUTLINE-Box
MOVIE OUTLINE 3

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.
