Mariner Software Montage

What is Mariner Software Montage ?

When you watch a TV show, a film or a play, it’s hard to see the structure that goes into each one. But it’s there. And, it’s pretty specific. It’s one thing having the idea – it’s something else getting that idea into the format needed to get noticed. That’s where Montage comes in.

Screenwriting – art with words

Screenwriting is a creative process but it’s not a free-for-all. It requires a specific type of formatting – from typestyle to line spacing and indentations. You can have a blockbuster idea but without the proper screenwriting format, it won’t get read. Montage, a screenwriting product developed exclusively for the Mac, contains everything you’ll need to create the right format so that your script won’t be another addition to the circular file.
It’s very useful and easy to use.
by VCCR2010
The graphic novel I wrote using Montage just hit bookstores worldwide this week. It’s called SWEETS: A New Orleans Crime Story. Reviews are fantastic and so far sales are strong. The book even won a Spinetingler Award!
Kody Chamberlain
“The main advantage I see of using Montage over other software packages I’ve looked at is its simplicity and ease of use, focused on the writer. It opens quickly, has an easy-to-use and easy-to-learn interface, and at the same time has nearly all the features you’d actually need or use from more complicated and expensive programs.”
N. Andreson
a Montage user
Puts Final Draft to shame. “Sure Final Draft is the _industry standard_ but why spend hundreds when Montage does the trick? I can export my work to Final Draft in the end anyway.”
Kevin Curran
a Montage user

Have Final Draft, will travel.

Let’s face it, Final Draft screenwriting software has been the industry leader for many years. For some users, a transition to a new screenwriting tool would be both challenging and intimidating.
Montage includes a built-in Final Draft importer which allows you to drag and drop your Final Draft documents (fdr format only) right on Montage and have them open in the Montage format.
What’s that? You say you have a writing partner who needs to work in Final Draft (for some bizarre reason!)…we can help there too. Have the ease of creating your work in Montage’s intuitive and elegant interface AND the convenience of saving your Montage script as a Final Draft file format (.fdr).

We’ll do all the heavy-lifting

Montage is designed to automatically structure your writing – you don’t have to worry about learning a complicated process. We’ve even included templates for almost every genre: TV, film, theatre, musical, comic book and more – just take your pick and Montage will do the rest.

View your script from every angle

Looking at your work from different perspectives, like any other type of art, is a good thing. Montage provides multiple views such as the Script View, so you can see what you’re writing page by page. The Outline View lays out your script scene by scene and allows you to organize your script and even set its status.

Don’t let yourself be distracted

A Full Screen Mode is a feature to keep you free from background images, e-mail and all the other stuff on your computer’s desktop. A clutter free desk will set the stage for focused writing and productivity.

Now you’re ready!

Writing a query, constructing a synopsis and sending your script, Montage assists with that too so you’re not left with a nicely formatted screenplay but nothing else. With the hundreds of included industry contacts through the integration with Apple’s Address Book – all you’ll need is determination.

Word Processor of the Year
2013 Reader’s Choice Finalist
I want to write, format text and save documents as documents for future use. Nothing I’ve seen beats Mariner Write for that. I just felt you had a right to hear some validation for what you’ve done with this program.
Bob Mendel
Mariner Write user
How about the bottom line first? Barring any dramatic change in its
performance or my experiences with Write, it is likely Mariner Write will be
the only word processor I use on my MacBook from here on out. Even if or
when Microsoft produces a Universal version of Word, I’ll stick with Write.

John Mandes
Mariner Write user

Did you want the kitchen sink?

Well, we’d hate to disappoint you but unlike the other word processor, Mariner Write has all the features you need for that important letter or technical document but without extra and often times, meaningless items. Sometimes all you need is to create customizable headers, footers, endnotes, footnotes or a simple style sheet. With Mariner Write, your document will always look clean, consistent and professional.

Mariner Software Narrator

What is Mariner Software Narrator ?

What do Agnes, Kathy, Alex, and Junior have in common? They are the voices of the Mac OS and they are used by Narrator, a text-to-speech and dictation app for your Mac. Have one or multiple voices read back your story (a great tool for novel or screenwriting that have conversations between two people), or help you study for a part in a play. Dictate a letter and listen as it is read back to you. The possibilities are endless.

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 6.33.43 AM

Bring words to life!

It’s really quite simple. You can paste text or import an RTF, .txt, or .doc file into Narrator and you can hear it read back to you. Control the rate, pitch, inflection, and volume to give the voices a wide range of expressiveness. There are also silent read-along options for stage directions or if you need to just read out your own parts.
Amazing app for writers. I’ve had this app for two years and it has never disappointed. I’ll be honest, it is amazing how many errors that you catch in your own writing when you have your book read back to you. I took the suggestion by Narrator to buy additional voices and found them to really enhance the listening experience. I’d recommend this for any serious author.
Glenn Luther
Narrator user
Narrator: been looking for this type of app for a long time. As an assistive technology professional, I’ve been looking for a application to allow me to introduce folks to computerised speech in an interesting/fun way: particularly young children..
David Woodbridge
Narrator user
“I love it! Narrator even lets me use some third party high resolution voices.”
Jean-Luc Lebrun
Narrator user
I kinda of tested it out during the 30 day trial period and i had to get it. Not that many playwrights out there i guess cause i only found out about this project thru amazon not locally. I like hear my plays out aloud at home so i can have a clear sensing of it before it is vocal performed!!! thanks Mariner!!! and oh if you want more voices you would have to buy but other than that its great!!!
A Narrator user

Assistive technology.

The Mac is good at assisting those with learning and sensory challenges with its VoiceOver and other assistive features. When it comes to TTS (text-to-speech) Narrator takes it one step further. Once you copy text or import it, you can assign voices to read out different parts. For example, you can select Victoria to read out the part of a novel or play when you need a female character, or assign the voice of Alex – whatever you want or need. Need something read back to you in Italian? or purchase Vittoria, the Italian voice (or many other voices from different languages) available from our partners at Cepstral. With its flexibility, Narrator can be a product to assist anyone who desires to maintain their independence or enhance their learning experience.

Narrator doesn’t just talk back, it will listen too! Use the Mac OS Enhanced Dictation for offline use and continuous dictation with live feedback. Dictate a letter, compose a short story. When you go back to add punctuation, Narrator enhances the feedback of your dictation with pauses and emphasis when it comes across commas and periods. Narrator is not without a sense of humor. Included are novelty voices like, Hysterical and Good News – all designed to enrich your TTS or dictation adventures.

A product that likes to learn.

To help you improve the pronunciation of tricky words, Narrator includes a Dictionary preferences feature. Enter a list of words to look for, and add the words or phrases to use in place of those words. You can replace an acronym or symbol with a more elegant phrasing or spell words differently so they are pronounced correctly.

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 6.34.27 AM

Take your voices with you.

You can export what you have created in Narrator directly to iTunes, where you can listen to it time and again. Sync your Narrator files to your iPad, iPod, or iPhone. Narrator enables you to create your own audiobooks from text. For example, pick a book from one to the 42,000 free books provided by Project Gutenberg, assign characters and export it to iTunes to enjoy whenever you wanted. There is also an export option for ACC sound files to use with other sound playing software such as a soundtrack in iMovie or as a screenshot voiceover.

Shhh! It’s a Secret!

Do your stories lack cohesiveness from start to finish? Contour explains the major storytelling secrets needed to craft a highly marketable movie.

Worried about how to start?

Don’t be. For many, it’s much easier to understand the Contour system by following the breakdown of a successful movie. Contour includes several entire scripts of blockbuster movies dissected through the Contour system.

Mariner Software Persona

What is Persona?

Go look at your library of writing tools. What do you see? Products to help create a story outline, a place to compile research, a dictionary app, spellchecking, and more. But what about your characters? What do you use to develop them, or do you just sort of, you know, let them evolve? Welcome to Persona. No matter if you’re a Mac or a Win user, Persona will help you create the strongest character possible.


Get inside your character’s head – with your Mac or PC.

Packed inside Persona are archetypal themes—good guys and bad guys. These archetypes are described in detail: personality traits, qualities, flaws, background, occupations, and how they interact with other personalities. Whether your character is a brainiac talking fish or an outcast orphanage owner, Persona helps you explore how each one’s unique psychology and background influence their dealings and dialogue. We’ve even made it possible for you to see what happens if your character becomes corrupt and turns from hero and heroine into villain or villainess.


Develop your characters; strengthen your story

The archetypes in Persona consist of 16 male and 16 female personalities, each group broken down into heroes, heroines, villains and villainesses. There’s the Action Figure, who will get the job done no matter the cost, or the Companion, a caring and selfless man. When the Action Figure loses his moral compass, he turns into the Brute, ruthless and argumentative, easily despised. The Companion, when depraved, becomes the Opportunist, betraying trust and taking advantage of others. Then there’s the Caregiver, empathic and nurturing, but when corrupted she becomes the Distracted Mother, antagonistic and disinterested.
How’s that to get your creativity revved?
“I really like this software. It’s simple to use and it has a great deal of archetypes to use. Of course this shouldn’t be the only thing you use to create a character, but what I’ve found to be helpful is that it generates ideas. When I started my character profiles I got so many ideas of what I wanted to do with them. It can be easy to think that you’ll be held in a box by this software. I don’t feel that way.”
Persona user
“The was a time earlier in my writing career that I really didn’t care how my characters evolved throughout my story. Mistake. Persona is a drop-dead simple way of making sure each character in my story is as accurate as can be. If you write, you need this app.”
Dave Winston
Persona user

We’ve made it simple.

Don’t be fooled by Persona’s spartan looks. Both the Mac and Windows version is designed to keep you focused on the task of developing your character. You can create Smart Groups based on attributes like tags, type, sex, or any word or phrase from your notes. If you’re not sure how your characters will fit together, you can construct ad hoc groups of characters without a defined relationship, in order to explore interactions. We’ve included a Names database with over 16,000 names and their origins that you can select from, or you can add your own.

Как пишут сценарии «Звездных войн», «Трансформеров» и других фильмов

В одном из недавних постов я рассказал, как можно самостоятельно издать свою книгу. Сегодня мы будем писать сценарий. Причем так, как это делают в Голливуде.

В свое время мне в руки попала интересная книжка Александра Червинского «Как хорошо продать хороший сценарий». Это был обзор американских учебников сценарного мастерства. В основе американского подхода — трехактная структура сценария, четко прописанные правила поведения персонажей. Более того, американский подход предполагает точное указание на то, что должно происходить в определенный момент фильма. У американского сценариста только одна задача — рассказать историю, обозначая действие, описание и диалог. Все остальное — задача продюсера и режиссера.
Поскольку американский стиль сценария обладает четкой структурой, он хорошо поддается оцифровке. Существует много специализированных программ для сценаристов. В целом они делятся на два класса:
  1. для построения сюжета и проработки персонажей,
  2. для построения структуры сценария.
К первой категории относятся такие программы, как Dramatica Pro, Character Pro, StoryView, Contour и другие. Ко второй категории — Final Draft, Celtx, Movie Magic Screenwriter и другие.

Программа для построения сюжета Contour разрабатывалась совместно с известным сценаристом Джеффри Шехтером («Бетховен 3» и другие). Соответственно, разработка сюжета в Contour идет по системе Шехтера.
