Mariner Software’s Montage 1.0 Screenwriting Software for Mac OS X Hits BetaProvides screenwriters with a live script outline, locations, tasks, research, and more (January 10, 2006)
Mariner Software announced today at the Macworld Expo that its forthcoming Mac OS X screenwriting application, Montage, has hit its beta development milestone. The software is expected to ship in March.
Developed exclusively for the Macintosh, Montage provides screenwriters with a live script outline, a view of characters, locations, tasks, research, and more. Included templates for film, television, radio, and theater automatically format the script to industry standards. Montage Smart Views allow writers to visually filter the script to the desired content, based on criteria. When the script is completed, Montage includes the ability to create, submit, and track query letters, a script synopsis, and script submissions to hundreds of included industry contacts.
Montage also imports Final Draft documents.
"With nearly 10 years in the word processing market, our approach isn't all that revolutionary. Create a product that is clean and simple, rather than cluttered and feature-bloated," said Michael Wray, President of Mariner Software. "Many people wanting to write a screenplay are overwhelmed by the complexities of how to use screenwriting software. Montage is not only easy-to-use and intuitive, but it also helps the writer get the script into the hands of people who can take it to the next step."
The shipping version of Montage will initially be offered in English and sells for $149.95US. Support for other language versions is expected in the near future. Montage will require Mac OS 10.3 or above and is fully accessible. Beta versions will be available to the public later in the month.
