Sample text

Throughout the rest of this book, we'll look at these areas in detail. Film Film projects are screenplays for movies and television shows. Screenplays have very rigid format requirements. The names of characters must start a certain number of spaces from the left margin. Dialog has its own starting point. Top, bottom, left, and right margins all must be exact. The typeface must absolutely, positively, definitely be Courier 12 point. For reasons—both traditional and practical, Hollywood producers, agents, and managers have zero tolerance policies on any variance from accepted script standards.

All those Wonderful Writing Features So the Master Catalog lets us both develop and track (in an ongoing creative manner) characters and thirty-five other predefined categories. The Manual Catalog feature gives us the option of adding literally hundreds of other automatically tracked categories. Are we starting to see the power of Celtx already? Yes. We are. Need an assistant? It's always good to get someone doing the little things, so that we can concentrate on rolling out words. Celtx jumps in, taking care of stuff that otherwise slows us down, stuff such as intuitive formatting.

If you type in a scene heading, the element window now shows Action. Knowing this, we can just keep typing without looking up at the elements window. However, when the actions and descriptions are written and we want a character to start talking, we have to look up and choose Character from the drop-down menu, right? Nope. Celtx has an easy shortcut. Just hit the Tab key and type in the character name. Then hit Enter and the Dialog element becomes active. Hit Enter at the end of a character's speech and you are in Character again, ready for someone to respond.
