It is highly recommended by such names as Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump”, “Toy Story”, “Saving Private Ryan”), Ben Stiller (“There’s Something About Mary”, “Night At The Museum”), Alan Ball (“American Beauty”,”Six Feet Under”(TV)), and Stuart Beattie (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”, “Pirates of the Caribbean: “Curse of the Black Pearl”) to name a few.Final Draft is a word processor that is designed for writing movies, television dramas and stage plays. It is both a word processor and a screenplay formatting tool. This duo allows writers to focus on the story, and not worry about the formatting or other presentation details.Loaded with unique features, Final Draft offers a powerful tool called “Smart Type” which automatically fills in character names, scene headings, and more. “Panels” which allow for you to view your script, its outline and index cards all at the same time. “Pagination” which automatically formats and paginates to industry standards.
