Discount Screenwriting Software for Students Now Available

(PRWEB) July 5, 2005

Darc Productions is pleased to announce that Movie Outline 2.0 is now available at discounted prices for students, teachers and faculty members. They are also offering even greater savings for schools and colleges if volume licenses are purchased.

What is Movie Outline?

Movie Outline is an innovative step-outlining application ideal for the student screenwriter who needs to learn how to plan the structure of their screen story before writing their screenplay. It allows for simple cinematic story planning with flexible scene reorganization and simultaneous reference to successful Hollywood movies. By streamlining the creation process of the entire outline structure, Movie Outline gives the screenwriter the space to think and view their story in a customizable color-coded visual manner while being able to work on individual scenes.

How can Movie Outline help me?

Many novice screenwriters make the mistake of jumping into a full screenplay before properly preparing their story and cinematic structure. This often results in many unnecessary rewrites, unfocused themes, flawed character arcs and plots that somehow seem to lose direction.

That's why Movie Outline was conceived - to take the complexity out of the outlining process and give you the space to think and plan your script scene by scene while simultaneously being able to compare your own story pacing with outlines and analyses of successful movies.

By comparing the development of your own character arcs, escalating conflicts, plot turning points and three act structure with the pros, you will be able to amend mistakes in your own narrative pacing and produce a well-structured screen story.

Example movie outlines & analyses included are:

Die Hard

Good Will Hunting


There's Something About Mary

True Romance

When Harry Met Sally

More are available from the Movie Outline online store.
