What is Mariner Software Contour ?At one time or another, every writer has experienced the dreaded, “now what do I write?” rut that brings even seasoned writers to their knees. Kiss those days goodbye, Follow the Contour system and answer just these 4 questions and you’re well on your way to creating a masterpiece: Who is the main character? What is the main character trying to accomplish? Who is trying to stop the main character? What happens if the main character fails?
You didn’t think it would be that easy, did you?Contour, the dual-platform, award-winning story development system developed by Emmy Award-nominated Jeffrey Alan Schechter, is designed to take your idea and turn it into a bulletproof outline. Contour teaches you the perfect blend of plot-driven versus character-driven storytelling that blockbuster movies use to create solid stories that hold together from Fade In to Fade Out.
Minimum Theory, Maximum Story.Unlike other story development systems which are either so complicated that you don’t know where to start or so lightweight as to wonder, “why in the world did I buy this?”, Contour is a must-have for every screenwriter. Using a fill-in-the blanks and intuitive approach, much like a software install wizard, Contour guides you as to what elements need to be part of your story outline – effectively constructing the foundation of your screenplay. In the end, you’re never left to wonder, “what comes next?”
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. Your main character’s journey is explained through archetypal themes – the same kind of themes used by most of the top 50 movies that have affected millions of viewers – maybe even you!
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.
