Using Adobe Story

Adobe Story is a new FREE screenwriting tool from Adobe. As an online app, many Adobe fans that own the Creative Suite are not aware that it even exists (get to it by going to story.adobe.com). However, Story is not only a great tool for screenwriting, but it has incredible tools for collaboration, pre-production, and also helps in the production and post production workflow using OnLocation and Premiere Pro!

 

I recently completed a draft of my first full length screenplay in Final Draft (which I loved). But, I found that I wanted more tools when I started the rewrite process. I wanted to go back to the drawing board and create character bios. I wanted to share my character bios and rewrite ideas with my wife, who helped me shape this idea. I found Adobe Story had so much to offer in these areas, and it’s been an amazing tool to use. I have now transferred all of the screenplays that I’m working on into Story, and I use it exclusively on every project. It’s a total lifesaver, and I wanted to share this with you in case any of you can benefit from it as well.

 

This is a 4-part mini-series covering all aspects of Adobe Story. First, introducing the software. Second, writing and importing screenplays. Third, pre-production. Fourth, in production and post production. I know that After Effects tutorials are more popular, but if you are into screenwriting at all, I really invite you to give Adobe Story a chance.

 

Tenderly,
Chad

    Thanks for the tutorials, Chad. I’ve started using Story on a new screenplay and have been enjoying the way it gathers other documents — character bios, plot summaries, etc. — in one place. I think the interface is a bit clunky, but I’m getting used to it and will stick with it through this project, at least.

    Aritcels like these put the consumer in the driver seat-very important.

    Great tutorial and very, very, very useful app.

    I have fallen in love with it!

    I’m currently producing documentary and I’m looking for suggestions. Does anybody use Adobe Story for documentary? I’d like to share experiences, tips and tricks. :)
