Movie Magic® Screenwriter™ beats Final Draft®
Head-to-Head

Movie Magic® Screenwriter™ has been the best dedicated screenwriting software program on the market since it was first introduced as ScriptThing in the early 1980's.

And, true to form, it has continually stayed one step ahead of all would-be competitors, including Final Draft.

In fact, Final Draft has always struggled to keep up with Screenwriter™. And the latest version still falls short.

Don't take our word for it. See for yourself!

We've actually been using Movie Magic Screenwriter once we discovered how much it kicked the ass out of Final Draft.
- Trey Parker
Director/Writer/Prod
"South Park"

I'm writing to tell you how pleased I am with your Screenwriter™. In fact, I liked the software so much, I intend to have the Drew Carey Show switch over to your product next seasons to replace the program we're using now.
- Drew Carey
Actor/Writer/Producer
"The Drew Carey Show"

Four years ago, a studio put us on Final Draft for a green-lit film. But as months passed, then years on subsequent projects, working with Final Draft meant struggling with a piece of software that deep down you know isn't giving you everything you should have. But it's what you've got. It's better than nothing. It's good enough. That's a lie. What's good enough, what's better than good, is switching to Screenwriter™. With Screenwriter™, sitting down to a days work is a completely different experience -- and an eye-opening one. Screenwriter™ is a powerful, elegant tool that, by contrast, shows just how mediocre the competition really is. But most importantly, Screenwriter™, the perfect assistant, lets you do what you sat down for in the first place -- create and enjoy.
- Christian Ford

Movie Magic® Screenwriter™ is one of the easiest screenplay formatting software on the market. The new version annihilates Final Draft 5.0 in every way imaginable.
- Jason Antebi
Done Deal

Screenwriter™ is simply the best - AND WE'VE TRIED THEM ALL - the flexibility and features are tremendous and though other software writing programs offer similar capabilities, none offer the range of features and templates. This means focusing on the issues at hand: writing of course but also taking the script to the next level - shooting it. This is where Screenwriter™ is more than just a great writer's tool - it becomes a Production team's tool to actually 'make the movie' with it's ability to create complete breakdowns of scripts and interface with the other remarkable Movie Magic tools."
- Jean-Philippe Girod
Producer
