Abstract

For screenwriters who need help generating ideas, ScriptDragon is a multi-platform app that provides creative inspiration in the form of various writing aids; such as notecards, character prompts, event prompts, and a generator for character and place names. Notecards can have any combination of: text, colors, associated plotlines, associated characters, and associated scenes. Character prompts will ask the user to describe particular aspects of characters, e.g. their childhood. Event prompts will ask how one or more characters react in a randomly chosen situation or location. The name suggester will randomly select names. For other people who need to do stuff based on a given screenplay, the app will generate reports based on criteria such as which characters are in a given scene. Screenplays and reports can be exported as plain text, PDFs, or other file types. Unlike currently available apps, our product is focused entirely on scripts (as opposed to being a more general-purpose management tool) and will run on phones as well as laptops.
