Filmmakers often like things organized. They like to be able to keep track of their media projects like screenplays, documentaries, audio, comics, games etc. With the help of Celtx, you can do all that and so much more.
Celtx is a client-server program that provides independent film makers a chance to organize all of their pre-production needs like scheduling, creating reports etc. It is also a great program for scriptwriters since it allows them to attach videos or images to the script to help the filmmaker have an idea of the scene. Currently, the program has an estimated 500,000 users all across the world.
There are several features that users can expect from Celtx. First, it has the capacity to accommodate many different kinds of media projects in different formats. Second, it has almost everything a media creator would need, from writing scripts, to storyboard scenes up until scheduling and providing reports for cast members and crew. Third, an entire production team will only need to work on one file, thus, eliminating confusion and problems.
However, with all these features that the program has, it excels best in the scriptwriting department. It can compete with some of the best commercial scriptwriting programs in the market today. It provides a lot of great features like allowing writers to attach pictures to help the rest of those involved know the right “look” appropriate for the characters. Users can even attach head shots of those that tried out for the role to help writers custom build the character according to the actor or actress.
If you are a beginner in scriptwriting, Celtx can definitely be a great aid to help you know the ins and outs of the process. There were minor kinks like a lack of rich text editing option as well as limited format, but overall, the program works great and can definitely help aspiring media creators create their masterpiece.
