Podcast Ep. 15: Screenwriting Software with Writer Duet’s Guy Goldstein

“Writer Duet is the most intuitive, most user-friendly scriptwriting software I’ve ever used. And it’s truly amazing to be able to write and share screens with one, two, or many different people at once. … I wish I’d had this earlier in my career. I can’t say enough good things about Guy Goldstein and Writer Duet.”
– Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Now You See Me

Join us for a very informative – and admittedly very biased – discussion of screenwriting software.

Guy Goldstein is an entrepreneur, screenwriter, actor, and software developer based in Austin, TX. He created Writer Duet when he saw a need for collaborative, intuitive screenwriting software offered at a reasonable price point.

Writer Duet allows multiple writers to simultaneously collaborate on a single script over the internet. It has one of the easiest-to-learn, most intuitive interfaces of any word processing application – ever. Writer Duet’s cost – largely due to the fact that Guy Goldstein IS the company – is extremely competitive ($69 at the time of this writing).

Now, to be truthful, I haven’t used it much. My word processor of choice lately has been Scrivener. I have dabbled a bit with the online version of Writer Duet – as a solo writer – and have been extremely impressed with it.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • The surprising parallels between screenwriting and programming
  • An overview of current screenwriting software offerings
  • Guy’s candid assessments of his competitors (Final Draft, Celtx, Adobe Story, etc.)
  • His first film-related software venture, ReadThrough.com
  • The future of screenwriting and film production software
  • The Austin independent film scene
