Movie Magic Screenwriter is a word processing program sold by Write Brothers to format screenplays, teleplays and novels.

History[edit]

Stephen Greenfield and Chris Huntley created Scriptor, one of the earliest screenplay writing programs, that worked by converting word documents into screenplay style.[1] The program's importance was highlighted by an Academy Award for technical achievement in 1994.[1] Scriptor later purchased ScriptThing, another screenwriting program, which was combined into Movie Magic Screenwriter.[1] The program is considered an industry standard, along with Final Draft.[1]

The Mac version of Screenwriter won a Macworld Editor's Choice Award for the year 2000.[2]
