Celtx Studio, Celtx Script and Pre-Production Workflow

February 16, 2012

A visit this week to the Film Program at Santa Fe Community College (SFCC), specifically Film 239, Producing and Directing the Independent Film. Not surprisingly, students were particularly interested in how Celtx facilitated the pre-production workflow by enabling script breakdowns and the generation of production reports. (Of course, all of that is explored in great detail in chapters 5, 7 and 11 of Mastering Celtx).

Since I had just scripted a 90-second promotional video for my university department, it was easy to pull up the script in the Celtx Studio I’m currently using this semester, and demonstrate breaking down the script, filling out breakdown sheets, and generating script reports and production reports.

Tomorrow I judge a business video competition being held more than an hour away: while being driven to the host hotel, I’ll be able to revise the promo script using the Celtx Script app. (Always try to be chauffeured places: you’ll be more productive!)

One of the Film 239 students asked: “Why bother using anything but Celtx for script development and script breakdowns?” And if you’re an indy media maker, that’s the right question to ask. Mastering Celtx will detail the answer.
