Celtx

Did you know there are rules for screenwriting? Actual rules. And when you don’t follow the rules, you get beaten with a yardstick — or ignored by Hollywood. Whichever hurts worse. Now that I fancy myself a screenwriter, I’ve hired an assistant to help me follow the rules. OK, “hired” is perhaps too strong a word; “downloaded” may be more accurate.

Celtx is a terrific little piece of software, absolutely free, that will write scripts, storyboard scenes and sequences, sketch setups, develop characters, breakdown & tag elements, schedule productions, and prepare and circulate informative reports for cast and crew. (Yeah, I plagiarized that description from Celtx’ website. Ssshhhh.) In between screenplays, it also writes comic books. Not kidding.

Now if Charlie Sheen could just download an assistant to help him follow the rules, all would be well in Hollywood.

It’s a fun and freaky respite from your Friday. I mean, seriously. How great is this?

WikispacesWhen I’m not blogging, or editing, or having a life, I’m building my little Wikispace. Gotta keep all that research someplace. Wikispaces is made for creating your very own version of Wikipedia. Use it to plan events or build a community.

Endless possibilities.

How do you facilitate group planning? Surely you’re not still using email. Are you?

PutPileWow. Sort of a combination Photobucket and YouTube, PutPile permits unlimited uploads of all your media files — photos, videos, audio, and flash. File sizes up to 200M are permitted, and multiples files can be uploaded at once. You get to choose whether to make your uploads public or private. It’s my new favorite storage depot.

Tell me about the best video you’ve uploaded — or viewed — this week. Click the Comments link to share.

PhotobucketMy hard drive is plenty full, and I’m not the crypt keeper. I don’t want to store all those random pieces of graphic art that really belong in blogs, email attachments and web sites. Storing photos is why the good Lord invented Photobucket — the free photo sharing and storage utility. Photobucket stores vast quantities of your graphic art, and you get to decide whether to keep it private or make it public. But the Slideshows may be Photobucket’s best feature.

Do you know of a comparable storage depot? Tell me about it by clicking the Comments link below.
