Free Software Helps Screenwriters Get Started

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Free Downloads

Have you always thought you had a story that would make a great movie? Screenwriting can be tricky business, because a very specific format is required for the material.

There are some expensive programs that can guide you through the process, but there’s also a great free program called Trelby that you can download by clicking here.

The program will put your work in the correct format and also offers auto-complete and spell check.


You can choose between a WYSIWYG mode or a draft view, depending of which you’re more comfortable using.


There’s also a helpful character name database with over 200,000 names from all over the world.


You also have access to report on scene, location character and dialogue.


Plus there’s the ability to compare different version of scripts to track your changes.


You can export your script at text, HTML, XML, Fountain and there’s even a customizable PDF generator.


Plus, their site gives you helpful resources for new screenwriters and discussion forums.  And since it’s absolutely free, there’s no harm in giving it a try.

Trelby is available for both Windows and Ubuntu and there’s also a helpful online manual.
