A range of powerful technologies are utilized to bring you a feature-rich program, including PHP and MySQL for scalability and reliability, Ruby on Rails for solid site architecture and Adobe Flex for a stable desktop-like experience that allows you to access your scripts from any Internet-connected computer, anywhere in the world. Never again worry if you have your latest draft with you when you want to work - your script is always ready to go in your password-protected online account. And if you need to go offline, Screenwriting Pro's desktop companion means you never miss a beat.
Screenwriting Pro is backed by The Writers Store's three decades in the entertainment industry. The brainchild of President Jesse Douma, this online application was created based on years of feedback from the thousands of aspiring and professional screenwriters that make The Writers Store their destination for creative resources.
Everything users have been asking for in a screenwriting program is here. From advanced outlining capabilities to convenient Internet access to practical account options, Screenwriting Pro sets a new standard for scriptwriting software.
For Jesse Douma, providing cutting-edge resources to writers and filmmakers has long been a way of life. Over the past 20 years, including 10 as the President of The Writers Store, he's made it his mission to bring straightforward technology solutions to the creative community. The culmination of his work is Screenwriting Pro, a web-based screenplay formatting application for film, television and stage plays.
Living on both coasts until the late 80s, Jesse settled in Los Angeles to be part of the family business, formerly called The Writers Computer Store. Now renamed The Writers Store, he has guided the company to its current position as the premier resource for writers and filmmakers worldwide. Recognizing additional needs within the industry, Jesse also created WritersUniversity.com, a popular online writing school, and StoryLink.com, a successful networking site for writers and filmmakers.
Jesse's passion for creativity extends to his personal life, with photography and cooking being among his pursuits. He's proud to offer this all-in-one scriptwriting software to the film community, and looks forward to developing more innovative tools to help writers write.
