CeltX will Make Your Day.
Celtx is an awesome multi-media tool for the filmmaker. media production person looking for a great tool with lots to offer , on the cheap. I don’t mean mass- produced, “Made in Ch__a” cheap, but inexpensive, considering the armload of Awesome Celtx delivers, and with much aplomb.
Once I got Celtx onboard my machines, I was thoroughly impressed with the user-friendly interface, enabling me to conjure properly formatted scripts from the ether like the next wannabe writer/ director. That was an empowering moment. From there, things have only
gotten better, and here’s why; Celtx has expanded into a full-on production package (Celtx Studio), helping artists to produce all types of media; film, video, documentary, theatre, machinima, comics, advertising, video games, music video, radio, podcasts, and videocasts. Whatever way you choose to tell your story, Celtx Studio can help.
Here’s some info from the site:
“You can use Celtx for the entire production process – write scripts, storyboard scenes and sequences, sketch setups, develop characters, breakdown & tag elements, schedule productions, and prepare and circulate informative reports for cast and crew.
Celtx is designed to help your entire production team work together on a single, easy to share project file – eliminating the confusion of multiple project files, and the need for ‘paper and binder’. Together, Celtx and Celtx Studios give you the most complete media pre-production system available.
The free Celtx desktop software delivers the most fluid writing experience. You can always keep your fingers moving as fast as your thoughts and your creative flow is never interrupted.

How cool is that? I love this package! Pricing for 5 or more users in a ‘studio’ starts at a paltry $4.99 /month. That’s $1.00 per month/ per user for the full monty!
