Planning to write you script and confused with which app you should be using to get a somewhat pro feeling and then not getting any, well; all of us have been there. There are applications for PC and Mac and they are free and mostly paid. However, if you’re not aware about the smart free apps for screenwriting and want something simple yet functional along with the quick access to even submit your script for a shot at the limelight or for that one chance to move forward into the elite club then you probably have to give Amazon’s Storywriter a chance.
Amazon Storywriter is a cloud based screenwriting app that not only allows you to write and complete your project, but helps you further by auto formatting it as you type. You can access Storywriter with your Amazon account via your computer browser where you can write your new script or even edit your own by importing it into the app. If you aren’t online, you can even use the free Storywriter Chrome app for Mac and PC and continue with your work offline without any internet connection. However, since it is cloud based, you’ll have to sync your work when you get online later. If you’re on a smartphone or a tablet, you can access and read your script, but you can’t edit it. Once you’re finally done with the work, you can save and export the finished script in PDF, Final Draft or Fountain formats.
It’s a simple app that does what it says, that’s allowing the writer to not think about any major aspects and just focus on writing. However, with Storywriter, Amazon is also allowing or should I say encouraging the young, talented and novice writers to submit their finished sceenplays to Amazon’s own Amazon Studios right from the app itself. Now, speaking of Amazon Studios, it is intuitive and interesting initiative where Amazon offers writers to work with Amazon’s own Studio to develop feature films and series. Moreover, Amazon Studios now works with both, Writer’s Guild of America and non WGA writers from all around the globe and if Amazon wants to option the your property that is your project, even if you’re not a WGA member, they will propose an agreement with terms that meets or exceeds applicable WGA minimums. All in all, Amazon Studios will pay for your script if they feel it is worth going forward and making something out of it.
You can access Amazon Storywriter and head over to the tutorials for more info and you should also have a look at Amazon Studios, if you’re wondering about it.
