Question by HenryB: What do professional scriptwriters use?
I know that there are different ways that screenplays can be written, such as through an internet website like “Zhura” or even with a regular old word processor. So I was wondering, what do the pros use (I’m talking about people swimming in money: Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, people like that. I know it’s harder to answer when including lesser known filmmakers).
Answer by Sabot03196
The industry standards are Final Draft and Movie Magic Screenwriter. Spielberg’s a Director so he doesn’t write anything. Cameron’s going to use one of those two.
Scripts get passed around a lot when a film’s on the go. you need the ability to, “Lock,” pages so you can keep track of the revisions. I don’t know if that’s available from Zhura.
I’m a produced screenwriter with feature film and TV credits.
