EMMY® WINNER | Go paperless with the award winning app for Film & TV!

“One of the most groundbreaking and revolutionary tools for production since the digital camera.” - Gregg Simon
"New Apps We Love" - Apple

Scriptation, the Emmy winning PDF annotation app for the film, television, and video industry, is the revolutionary app for production that intelligently transfers your annotations, notes, and markups into new script revisions.

Whether you're a filmmaker on a big budget feature or a student on your first production, Scriptation makes it easy to go paperless, increase your productivity, and save hours of time.


If you’ve ever had 30 revision pages on a 40-page script, you know how time consuming it is to copy your notes to new script pages. Scriptation’s proprietary note transfer algorithm analyzes script changes and transfers every note to its corresponding location in the next draft in literally seconds.


Pen and paper, meet stylus and tablet. Scriptation offers a full set of annotation tools that allow you to highlight text, type notes, add photos, insert stickies, record sound, and more. It's never been easier to breakdown your script.


You can finally get rid of that 3-ring binder. Scriptation gets you organized by keeping all your scripts, call sheets, schedules, and production documents in a digital production binder.


Insert facing pages, set plans, photos, diagrams, and more, and transfer them into new script revisions. You can even ditch paper sides by creating your own with all your notes.


Want to separate notes based on meetings? Or share your thoughts with your department? Scriptation’s annotation layers makes it easy to navigate between sets of notes.


Sync between devices by connecting to cloud storage providers including iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive. Scriptation syncs your notes, actor highlights, and inserted pages for use across all of your devices.


That table read script isn’t going to highlight itself. Or is it? Built for actors but customized for sound mixers, Scriptation automatically highlights character lines with the tap of a button.


Automatically transform your script into an easy to read format. Adjust font and size for the ultimate script reading experience.

The BEST for TV production

I love this app! I have purchased and used GoodReader and iAnnotate but neither comes close to Scriptation. The best attribute is that all notes, including highlights, drawings, photos and voice notes, come across to the next collated script with a touch of a button. I used to have to copy and paste the note. It even gives you a list of what has changed in your notes that doesn’t fit the script anymore. So if you highlighted a passage, and the passage changed, it tells you. Brilliant!
Now scripts and schedules can be kept in the cloud so you can read them on the computer or iPhone and make notes and it syncs notes across all those platforms.
I push all my productions to go paperless and now this app makes it easy to convert people to go paperless.
Technical support is amazing! All my questions are answered quickly and all suggestions are taken into consideration in order to make the app better.

Scriptation saves me so much time!

Currently I am on episodic, and we get countless colored one liners and script pages. Scriptation saves me so much time transferring all of my notes from one color to the next . To have the ability to thoroughly break down a script , Whether it be for television or film and be able to instantly transfer it every time there is an update is amazing. I also create folders from my episodes and store my PDFs whether I create them or whether they’re sent to me in that file and I have everything all together on my iPad and not have to carry around a 3 inch notebook is a beautiful thing. On the information page we could use a detailed one or two sentence explanation to share with our first 80s and production managers as to how to send the digital files so that they are fully accessible on Scriptation.

How did I go this long without you

Since being turned on to Scriptation my set life has become a director dream. Well , the organization of my scripts always....
No more transferring of notes every time we get a rewrite or a new note. No more hoping my pages don’t get wet while shooting outside or worse lost !
Everyone who sees me working with Scriptation is immediately intrigued, actors , producers , ADs , many of whom now use it as their go to script throughout productions.
I can’t recommend this app enough - you purists can keep you binders and pages with smeared pencil marks and highlighted notes that make your script look like a manic third grader - or you can welcome in the new age of film organization. Try it - you will thank me later.
PS - you’re welcome in advance.
