Has :roll: anyone had experience of using the free download Celtx to create screen scrips. It can be downloaded from It can be used for several types of script treatment and can allow project sharing with other users.

I have downloaded a copy and it does what it says on the tin. has anyone used it to share a script, with other users, to allow them to contribute to the creative process? If you have can you post your experiences of using it.

Hello Edin,

Borderline Shorts use celtx and other useful programs - see their article on the making of Head at but I too would love to hear from others who have used it.

I've been using it for over a year to write up the scripts for XDL Films and we have found it to be an excellent programme with the added bonus that it is free so that we can each (there are three of us in the group) have a copy of the programme on our own computers.
