“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.
