Hi there, I'm Maxim Jago. I'm an Adobe master trainer, author and award-winning script writer. I share my time between film making and teaching, visiting film makers around the world to help them develop their skills and find new ways to explore their creativity. I regularly work for Adobe as a trainer and stage presenter, and I'm a big fan of their post-production tools. Story is a powerful script writing tool that automates several script writing tasks.

It will automate the writing process, automatically completing character names, managing scene numbering, and apply the very precise standard script layout rules professional scripts must adhere to. It also provides a range of features that serve the whole production cycle. You can tag scripts with metadata. And then automatically generate reports for pre-production tasks, giving you things like prop, cast, and location lists. You can generate schedules, collaborate on documents, sharing editing tasks and using commenting and reviewing tools. You can even take the dialog created with Story.

And attach it to your recorded footage, inside Premier Pro. Allowing for text base editing work flows. Story is quick to learn and flexible in use. It comes in three flavors. Two stand alone versions and one that is part of the complete Production Premium. CS6 Suite of Applications. In this course, we'll be learning about all of the writing tools Story offers, including the new script map, that makes it quick and easy to develop the structure for your story before you begin. By the end of this course, you'll find it easy to create industry standard scripts and be ready to contribute advanced metadata and production specific information based on decisions made at the very start of the creative process.

Filmmakers often say everything starts with a story. Well, let's find out why.
