The story for "Copy Shop" was in my head for 10 years. Dramatica is with me for 5 years - long enough to burn the 12 essential questions into my subconsciousness. The 12 minute film won 25 international awards and an Oscar-nomination.

Dramatica Pro is a story development tool I am pleased to recommend to other writers. It can either develop a story with minimal feedback from the writer or significantly enhance an existing idea by fanning writer passion to an unexpected level. This has allowed my story development process to shift in several truly systemic ways.
- David O'Neal

Fool Me Twice, What Goes Around, The Pact with Bruno, Choosing to Kill

I had my pitch meeting with a producer... Everything he wanted to know I'd been forced to game out with my ol' friend Dramatica... the program will make your job as a writer not only easier, but more fun. By the way, I got the deal.
- David Obst

Dramatica is an essential tool for developing a story's structure. I used it extensively to develop a screenplay that was awarded first place in the SlamDance Screenwriting Competition.

Having writer's block or even paradoxically too many ideas can prevent you from getting that great concept or pitch off the ground. That's where Dramatica comes into play. It's not only the ultimate objective brainstorming partner but it guides you through the in-depth- process of character, plot and theme development without which there can be no good screenplay. There is a lot of painstaking 'homework' in the development process but Dramatica actually draws you into it almost effortlessly. It makes the next step-the screenwriting process-virtually devoid of the dreaded writer's block. In one case Dramatica has provided an angle and idea for the storyline that no one thought about. It made the story better; it was actually brilliant and it was free! Now that's a novel concept in this town!
- Jean-Philippe Girod

Dramatica Pro is a great way to start out and organize a story. By using the desktop files to create and develop a character, you save paper and time. The brainstorming tools are also very useful in lending a helping hand to story development. Dramatica Pro is a great way to organize a story for script development purposes.
- Robin Cowie
Producer
"The Blair Witch Project"

Dramatica can take any idea, flush it out, and transform it into a working treatment. Once you're done running your ideas through Dramatica Pro, writing the script is a piece of cake!
