I teach a television writing course and one of the hardest things students have to deal with is creating a two-column (audio/video) format script with a word processor. I've long since figured out a way to do it that works for me, but there MUST be a piece of software made for that format. I understand that there is an application called Side-by-Side, and I checked out their web-site, but on that basis I was unimpressed. I'm also told that Final Draft will also create a two-column script, in addition to standard movie format, but it's a little pricey to buy and maybe find out that it isn't quite what I'm looking for. So, what about it? Who out there can recommend something? I'd like to get past that typical first few weeks in every semester when I get the damndest, most unreadable "scripts." I invariably just tell some of them to literally cut and paste. ________________________________ A L A N B E L L Santa Rosa, CA [log in to unmask] =========(707)546-6988========== ---- Screen-L is sponsored by the Telecommunication & Film Dept., the University of Alabama.
