The Ins & Outs of Final Draft

Phil Galasso
Director of Marketing
Final Draft

Hollywood loves new ideas, but needs those new ideas presented in a familiar and easy-to-digest way. You don’t want anything like formatting to stand in the way of your story. Unfortunately, the truth is that when executives open your screenplay and immediately notice that it’s not composed in Final Draft, it gives them pause. The screenplay doesn’t look like what they’re used to seeing, and it’s distracting. Basically, if you're not using Final Draft, it makes you look like an amateur - plain and simple.

While there are plenty of software offerings available for composing a screenplay, Final Draft is the industry standard. Every working writer in Hollywood works in Final Draft - or is at least knowledgeable on how to use it!

As part of our ongoing efforts to equip our writers with the skills and knowledge needed to break into the screenwriting game, Roadmap is excited to host Final Draft for a FREE Webinar all about their software, how to use it, and how to get the most out of it to help put your best foot forward!
