THE REMOTE

WRITERS ROOM

COLLABORATE EASILY, SECURELY, AND FROM ANYWHERE

WritersRoom Pro is the only 100% secure, browser-based, TV series and film development system designed by a showrunner for professional writers' rooms. 

Remote Collaboration

Multiple users can view and edit the same boards, together or thousands of miles apart.  And because it's web-based, if you have a browser you have WritersRoom Pro.

Customizable

Teaser, four acts, five acts, six acts, tag? All or none of the above? You choose the perfect template for your show. Work your way, not anyone else's.

Military-Grade Security

AES-256 encryption, administrator and user access, digital watermarking...and that's just for starters.

MS Word & Final Draft® Compatible

Output your cards to Word, Final Draft®, or your favorite editing program to create beat sheets, outlines, and even scripts.  No retyping or transcribing needed.

Multi-Device Capable

WritersRoom Pro looks great on laptops, desktops, and tablets.  It even works on smartphones so you can engage with your show from anywhere.

Non-Destructive Editing

Work is never lost. Revert any index card or even an entire board to a previous revision as far back as day one of the writers room.

Touchscreen Enabled

Enter text on a touchscreen display with a stylus, computer keyboard, or onscreen touchpad.  Displays can be 65", 75" or a whopping 85".

Drag & Drop

Cards can be moved freely by swiping, dragging, and dropping.  They can also be stacked and color-coded.  Push pins and dry-erase markers be damned!

MAKE WRITERSROOM PRO WORK YOUR WAY

Four boards on one (or more) displays

The writers' room boards you're familiar with, now on your home computer, laptop, tablet, 4K television or mobile device.  Even all at the same time.  And if you have a touchscreen display, moving cards around the boards is like you're still in the writers' room.  Just in your pajamas.

  • Season Board

    Chart the big moves of an entire season. Six episodes? Eight? Ten or more? The canvas expands with the season order.

  • Episode Board

    Every episode of the season is a single click away.  Also, add sluglines and dialog and Final Draft will format them correctly.

  • Character Board

    Define characters, assign their call sheet position, drag and drop a picture, and track their arcs from first to last episode.

  • Scrap Board

    Don’t know where to put a card, note, idea, or even a drawing to be saved for later?  We do. Right here.  Pro license users can create multiple scrap boards.

From Brain to Board to Page to Screen

WritersRoom Pro is a complete turn-key system designed to work exactly the way your writers room always has, only much better.  Much, much better.

  • Project Setup

    It starts here.  Enter the name of the show, the season, the number of episodes, the format of the show, and which boards to use.  WritersRoom Pro then sets up each board based on these answers.  After that you tell WritersRoom Pro who on your staff gets what kind of access to the project (read & write, read only, administrator) and your show is officially good to go.  Setting up a project takes less than 5 minutes.

     

    WritersRoom Pro also has feature development boards so you can lay out your feature film or longform projects as well as television.

  • Index Cards without Limits

    The heart and soul of WritersRoom Pro is our index card system.  If you know how to use an index card, you know how to use these index cards.

     

    Big, bold letters with a text box that extends as far needed for all the information entered.  And when the card is closed an indicator on the card lets everyone know that there’s more text on that card than is visible.

  • Color Code the Cards

    Change a card’s color to any of 60 different colors and shades and include up to 4 different colors on the same card to chart 4 different characters, or action beats, props, locations, etc.  You decide what your card colors mean.  You can even generate reports based on those colors.

  • Create Eight Different Kinds of Cards

    Text cards, text cards with titles, image cards, image cards with titles, and combinations of each can be created and added to each board.

  • Lock & Hide Episodes

    Sometimes writers need time to work on their episodes without anyone looking over their shoulders.  Episodes can be hidden from anyone or everyone until the writer is ready to present his or her work.  And when perfection has been reached episodes can be locked, protecting them from any changes. (Studio Edition only)

  • Freehand Draw and Highlight

    Use our pen tool to highlight and freehand draw on any card, with or without text.

  • Need to Track Multiple Ideas?  Stack the Cards.

    Sometimes a story beat has more elements to it than makes sense to write on a single card.  Character development, action beats, or even just story notes sometimes need to be connected to the same place in an episode.  No problem!  As many cards as needed can be created and then dragged on top of each other to make a stack.  Clicking on the stack opens all of the cards at the same time for editing.

  • Instant, Detailed Search

    Between the Season, Character, and Episode boards the average 10 episode show has over 500 index cards.  With WritersRoom Pro, searching for a name, word, or expression returns every card, on every board, that contains the search term.  And more than that, the search result shows the location of that card on any board.

  • Export to Word and Final Draft

    No more transcribing of your boards, ever!  WritersRoom Pro’s one-click export instantly saves any or every board’s contents to an .rtf file which can be opened in Word, Final Draft®, or most any other text editor.  Plus, if a hard copy of the entire show is needed, WritersRoom Pro can export everything into a single text file for your records.
