Montage makes it easy to create, edit, and manage screenplays on a
Macintosh. From the ability to import and export Final Draft or text
documents, to using custom, pre- formatted templates for film, TV, and
theater, to the time-saving Smart Views, Montage guides both the first time
screenwriter or the seasoned veteran, from start to finish.

But Montage doesn’t stop there.

Once a script is complete, Montage allows the user the ability to submit,
track, and send a query, synopsis, and scripts to hundreds of included
industry contacts through Montage’s integration with Apple’s Address Book.

The shipping version of Montage 1.3 is expected to be released in November
and will sell for $139.95USD. It will be a free upgrade for all Montage 1.0
customers. Montage requires Mac OS 10.3.9 or above and is fully universal
and accessible.
