ScreenPro is a shareware (i.e., try before you buy) screenplay formatting template for MS WORD. ScreenPro eliminates the drudgery of complying with the industry-standard movie script format, freeing your creative energy for the story-writing process. The shareware version of ScreenPro is fully functional, but does include reminders asking you to buy the registered version if you appreciate ScreenPro's benefits. Download ScreenPro 2.0a (66k) Now! (Note: the macro "magic" of ScreenPro works in versions of Word after Word97 only if you change the Tools/Macros/Security setting to Medium instead of High.) Word 2007 uses, please see the ScreenPro2007 section below for your shareware download.

As noted above, PLEASE TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. Make sure ScreenPro works for you before buying the registered version. I offer this shareware at a very low price and can not afford the overhead of a lot of tech support or issuing refunds. Please help keep ScreenPro affordable for everyone!

ScreenPro FAQ:

"There are TWO versions of ScreenPro. Which do I need?"
ScreenPro97 works with MS Word 97 through Word 2003. ScreenPro 2007 works only with MS Word 2007. If you have Word 2007, order ScreenPro 2007. If you have an older version of Word, stick with ScreenPro97.

"What about the 'Macros Revealed' stuff? Do I need that?"
Access to the macros (mini programs) that make ScreenPro "go" is for the tinkerers out there who want to look under the hood and possibly change the way the template works. You do not need to see or edit the macros to change the styles that control where each type of paragraph prints on the page, margins, spacing, etc. Style definitions control these. If you are a "tinkerer" I recommend you keep a backup copy of the unaltered template so you can go back to square one if necessary.

"I don't want to use PayPal. Can I still order ScreenPro?"
Yes. Just send a check or money order payable to John Passarella at P.O. Box 381, Swedesboro, NJ 08085. Please note that because of mailing materials (CDs, mailers, labels, inserts, etc.) plus postage, the cost is slightly higher for mailed versions of ScreenPro.

"What about credit cards?"
The low cost of ScreenPro combined with my average monthly sales volume makes it cost ineffective to accept credit cards directly. The monthly fees begin around $50 per month, and that's without a single sale. PayPal only charges me when I have a sale.

"If it's fully functional, why register...?"
The registered version is free of those guilt-tripping reminders. Plus, you get "Script Analysis Tools" to help whip your spec script into studio-bidding-war-frenzy shape!

"I'm convinced... But how much is it gonna cost me?"
If mailed to you, less than ten bucks. ($8.50 US + $3.25 S&H, $11.75 total.) That's it! I created ScreenPro for aspiring screenwriters, not established pros willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a retail script writing package. The email-only ZIPped file version costs a mere $8.50!

"Great! How do I buy the registered version?"
If you don't want to sit around waiting for your check to clear, pay via safe, secure PayPal. Your disk will go out next business/mail day! Or, receive near-instant gratification and save $3.25 S&H in the process by ordering the email-only version (see below).

Announcing ScreenPro2007For WORD 2007 Users Only!
(Do NOT order this version if you use MS Word 97 through 2003!)

If you use Word 2007, please download the shareware version (try before you buy) of ScreenPro modified to work with Word 2007, ScreenPro2007. Note that the special ScreenPro is not immediately visible because it loads within the Add-Ins tab on the Ribbon Interface. Unfortunately, this is how Word 2007 treats all custom toolbars. (Note: So far ScreenPro2007 appears to work with Word 2010.)

As noted above, PLEASE TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. Make sure ScreenPro works for you before buying the registered version. I offer this shareware at a very low price and can not afford the overhead of a lot of tech support or issuing refunds. Please help keep ScreenPro affordable for everyone!

Kudos For ScreenPro

STARSTARSTARSTARSTAR The Internet FilmMakers FAQ gave ScreenPro97 FIVE STARS, their highest rating! Here's what they had to say: "The winner by far on the screenplay shareware front is Jack Passarella's ScreenPro97. A fully featured template/add-in for Word 97, ScreenPro97 is the tool with which the indie filmmaker can easily bash out the next Reservoir Dogs. And a measely $US 10.00 registration gives you access to ScreenPro's Script Analysis Tools, to help your script achieve tightness not turkeyness."
