If one could marry a program - or even elope with one - I would choose Final Draft. After all it has been a wise, patient and loyal writing partner that has been by my side for almost fifteen years.

James Mangold — Writer / Director / Producer / Academy Award Nominee
  • Carol
  • Mrs. Harris

Writing a script prior to Final Draft was like pulling oneself out of quicksand - cut, paste and formatting nightmares. I discovered Final Draft early in the process of writing Carol and have never used another program since. And never will.

Phyllis Nagy — Writer / Director / Academy Award Nominee
  • The Intern
  • It's Complicated
  • Father of the Bride

Final Draft actually makes getting to the final draft faster, easier and more fun than any other screenwriting program I’ve tried. I love it!
