Mariner Software Releases Montage

Minneapolis, MN – July 14, 2006 -Mariner Software, developers and publishers of professional and personal software for the writing and creativity markets, today announced the release of their long-awaited screenwriting application for Mac OS X, Montage. The only professional screenwriting software exclusively developed for Mac OS X, Montage provides screenwriters with a live script outline, a view of scenes, characters, locations, tasks, research, and more. Several pre-formatted templates, including film, television, and theater, automatically format the user’s script to industry standards. Montage Smart Views allow writers to visually filter the script to the desired content, based on criteria. When the script is completed, Montage even includes the ability to create, submit, and track query letters, a script synopsis, and script submissions to hundreds of included industry contacts.

Montage also imports Final Draft, text, and RTF documents.

“Montage is how a modern, professional screenwriting application should work,” said Michael Wray, President of Mariner Software. “With Montage, we are changing the paradigm in that we are making the creation process significantly easier and more intuitive than other solutions. This product begins a new era in the writing of screenplays and we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of what we can do.”

The shipping version of Montage will initially be offered in English and sells for $139.95 USD. Support for other language versions is expected in the near future.
