MAKE WRITERSROOM PRO WORK YOUR WAY

One Display, Four BOARDS

Easily change views from board to board to board (to board) with a single click.

SEASON BOARD.

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


EPISODE BOARD.

No more stacking and shuffling of bulky episode boards. Every episode of your season is a single click away.


CHARACTER BOARD.

Define your 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 that you want to save for later? We do. Right here.


All I'm doing is writing a pilot. Why do I NEED so many boards?

TV development isn't like writing a one-off spec feature. If you're lucky enough to get some interest in your pilot the first thing you will be asked is what does an entire SEASON of your show look like, who are all the CHARACTERS, and what are some sample EPISODES and story arcs?

 

Professional writers work all of this out ahead of time because it's part of every good pitch.  Using WritersRoom Pro to help clarify and plan your ENTIRE show isn't just a good idea, it's essential to your success.


From Brain to Board to Page to Screen

WritersRoom Pro is designed to work exactly the way you want...only much faster.  And much, much better.

PROJECT SETUP

It starts here.  Enter the name of your show, what season you’re on, the number of episodes, the format of the show, and which boards you want.  WritersRoom Pro then sets up your display templates.  Setting up a project only takes a few minutes.

DIGITAL INDEX CARDS with NO 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 our index cards.

 

Big, bold letters, with a text box that extends as far as you need to enter all the information you want.  And when the card is closed and you’re looking at the board, an indicator on the card lets you know that there’s more text on that card than is visible.

COLOR CODE YOUR CARDS

Change a card’s color to any of the 14 commonly used index cards colors and your WritersRoom Pro boards will look and feel like traditional writers room corkboards in no time.

HIGHLIGHT AND DRAW with YOUR MOUSE, TOUCHPAD, OR STYLUS

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

NEED TO TRACK MULTIPLE IDEAS?  STACK 'EM!

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 your episode.  No problem!  Create however many cards you want and then drag them on top of each other to make a stack that you can then rotate through.  Clicking on the stack opens all of the cards at the same time for editing.

DETAILED SEARCH with CARD LOCATIONS

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 searched term.  And more than that, the search results window tells you where you can find that card on any board.  See the blue card in the picture?  That card can be found on the Episode Board, in Episode 107, in Act 1, in the sixth position.

EXPORT to WORD, FINAL DRAFT®, & MORE

No more transcribing of your boards, ever!  WritersRoom Pro’s one-click export instantly downloads any or every board’s contents to your choice of an .rtf, .txt, or HTML file which can be opened in Word, Final Draft®, or most any other text editor.

No more sloppy cards, smudged dry erase boards, or accidentally lost info in the writers’ room.
