If you think that writing a screenplay is difficult... you're right! But what about revisions? Most screenplays go through many, many revisions and they all have to be done according the unwritten film industry rules. This course is designed to help you rewrite and edit your screenplay in Final Draft using all the powerful editing tools this screenwriting software has to offer.
One of the most important things that screenwriters need to know is how to easily navigate around a script. The first 7 tutorials in this course give you all the tools and tips to make getting around your script fast and efficient. Then, once you start revising, you learn how to edit dialog, renumber, omit and re-order scenes. All of this is managed by the all-important Revision Mode where you can accurately mark-up, date and track every change made to your script throughout the rewriting process. This ensures that you (and your collaborators) are all on the "same page".
This course is filled with many essential screenwriting tips to help you edit, organize and get your script ready for shooting. So sit back and learn how to revise and edit your script like a pro, in accordance with film industry standards, using Final Draft in this 24-tutorial course by Matt Vanacoro.

Another lesson filled with "Meat." This Second tutorial is allowing me to create and edit a musical as I am watching it. I had FD7 for over 13 years and never felt confident to use it event once. I am using FD9 within 24 hours of purchase, thanks to this tutorial. ALSO: The information about protecting your scripts is very useful as well.
