It has been a long time since we’ve had a Producer’s Perspective Giveaway. . . so we thought we’d come back with a goodie.
I’ve read a lot of scripts over the course of my 25 years (translation – I’m now old) in the biz. Thousands, actually. And the other day I was raging about a script that was formatted so poorly, I couldn’t make any sense of it. Which was too bad, because I think it had potential.
The folks at Final Draft (not only the best scriptwriting software out there but really the only scriptwriting software out there), must have heard me because they offered me a free copy of their powerful software to give away to one of you lucky ducks.
I’ve been using Final Draft for years, on everything from My First Time to, yep, Gettin’ The Band Back Together. And not only does it help you write your play or musical in the proper format (or screenplay, pilot, etc.) but, it helps you write faster.
I swear it.
All of the shortcuts, from automatic indentation of dialogue to quick filling character names, allows you to stay on a roll with whatever you’re writing, which gets you to the end more quickly than writing in any other word processor.
And writing faster means your chance of getting a production happens faster (and it prevents someone from beating you to your idea!).
I love me some Final Draft. And one of you is going to love it too . . . because one of you is going to win it!
To enter to win a free copy of Final Draft (a $249 value), just click here (and pay special attention to how you can enter multiple times).
The contest closes one week from today on March 16th and we’ll announce the winner on Monday, March 19th!
Good luck and happy writing! (And thanks to our friends at Final Draft for this fun and high priced giveaway! And if you don’t win, get it anyway. You’ll thank me for it later.)
