A free custom template for Apple Pages, the free Apple productivity app, designed to help you write in screenplay form (Warner Brothers format).
The title page is pretty much self-explanatory: you can write your title, credit, and add your contact details.
Then, start writing your screenplay using the Text tab to format your script:
- SCENE HEADING
- CHARACTER CUE
The scene index will build up as you fill your script with scenes.
Shortcuts: you can use the shortcuts as they are assigned. The trick to make these work is to use the Fn key simultaneously.
For instance, when in Dialogue mode, you'd press Enter, then Fn + F3 for CHARACTER CUE. Once in CHARACTER cue, you only need to press Enter to get back into Dialogue mode.
The template uses Courier, the traditional screenplay font, but if you want it to look better, you should use Courier Prime, an open-source font designed by Alan Dague-Greene for John August and Quote-Unquote Apps — you can download it here: https://quoteunquoteapps.com/courierprime.
If you are already familiar with Apple Pages, this template is a welcome addition to help you write and format your screenplay.
You can also get the Apple Pages template for Screenplay (Cole and Haag model).
