Streamline for Movie Magic Screenwriter
At a Glance
Most writers expend considerable effort to reduce their page counts, and often have to resort to a laborious manual search to locate edits that can yield results. Out of desperation they may resort to “cheating the script”: techniques that involve manipulating formatting, margins or font point size. But these antiquated techniques aren’t fooling anyone.
Streamline is the first automated tool to help writers quickly and honestly trim excess material and reduce their page count. Streamline can analyze a feature length screenplay in less than a minute, and display a list of suggested edits that are guaranteed to reduce the page count.
For example, Streamline may identify that a paragraph of dialogue on page 11 uses the word “understand.” Shortening that word by two letters would save the writer two pages – reducing the script from 122 pages to 120 pages. Streamline even suggests acceptable synonyms to shorten the word. The writer can press one button and replace the word, instantly shortening the script.
Streamline has five different tests it can apply to a script. It can analyze the deletion of words, trailing lines, entire paragraphs, and transitions. There is also a special analysis to see if shortening character names results in savings pages.
