When you are writing scenarios for your educational video or your digital storytelling project I found a nice tool to support you.
The tool, that can be used for Windows, Linux and Mac OS, is available in 20 languages including Chinese, Russian and Dutch. It is free to download.
On the website they say about it:
Celtx is the world's first fully integrated solution for media pre-production and collaboration. It replaces old fashioned 'paper, pen & binder' media creation with a digital approach to writing and organizing that's more complete, simpler to work with, and easier to share.
I'm not sure if they are the first but I know for sure that this application works intuitive and it is a very complete environment. You can even add functionality if you are using the (paid) webservices.
But even without the webservice you get a complete set of useful functionalities. You can use Celtx in the different production phases, the main areas where you can use it:
- WRITING TOOLS (scripting, index cards, etc.)
- PRE-VISUALIZATION TOOLS (storyboarding, etc.)
- ORGANIZATION TOOLS (scheduling, back up, etc.)
So far I used mainly the storyboarding tool and that one is enough reason to download the package.
