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.

Final Draft makes it so much easier – and it’s motivating when what you’re working on looks like a script.

  • Girl, Interrupted

Final Draft is a program made to perform one task with excellence – the writing of a screenplay – by people who support Final Draft users with passion and understanding.

  • Phyllis Nagy
  • 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.

  • Nancy Meyers
  • 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!
