Entertainment industry software leader Write Brothers Inc. has partnered with Hollywood script consultant and best-selling author, Michael Hauge, to create a new software tool for screenwriters aching to write the next Hollywood blockbuster. The Michael Hauge Story Structure Template for Movie Magic Screenwriter blends the experience and know-how of Michael Hauges popular six-stage structure with the power and ease-of-use of the industry favorite screenwriting program, Movie Magic Screenwriter 6. While most screenwriting software shows the writer a blank page and wishes him luck, the Michael Hauge template helps screenwriters structure and outline their entire script. To use this template, one merely opens it within Movie Magic Screenwriter. The screenwriter sees an outline of Hauge’s advice covering everything from the first scene to critical plot points to character development. The screenwriter can then write his screenplay directly within the template or use Hauge’s advice as a constant reference. An outline of Michaels instructive hints and directions is available with a single click of the mouse.
