Filed under: Press Releases by admin @ 3:00 pm on October 1, 2009

October 1, 2009  (London, UK) — Nuvotech announces the implementation of a new screenwriting class offered to 2nd year MFA candidates at Boston University.

REWRITE!

“The Rewrite” is a new graduate screenwriting course offered this Fall at Boston University’s acclaimed screenwriting program, giving thirteen candidates the opportunity to test drive Movie Outline’s unique features in order to construct a solid outline for a new feature script and assist in re-drafting an earlier work. The results of using Movie Outline 3 will be reported and published at the end of the term.

“I have long searched for a program that combines standard script formatting with in-depth story and character development,” commented Professor John Bernstein, Director of the Screenwriting Program. “I really like the way Movie Outline focuses on story and structuring and believe that my students will benefit greatly from using it.”

Dan Bronzite, CEO of Nuvotech adds “We are delighted to be working with Boston University and hope that this collaboration will not only help their students but also further develop the features of the software for the needs of the modern screenwriter”.

Nuvotech launches Hollywood Script Express

Filed under: Press Releases by admin @ 2:41 pm on April 23, 2009

April 23, 2009  (London, UK) – Nuvotech is pleased to announce the launch of their new script submission and intellectual property registration service that provides screenwriters with professional printing, binding and shipping from their web browser.

Online Script Submission

Hollywood Script Express offers scriptwriters, wherever they are in the world, the ability to upload a screenplay and have it professionally printed and bound to industry standards from one of their Los Angeles Printing Partners and shipped the same day by FedEx or hand delivered by courier. This facility especially benefits out-of-state and overseas screenwriters who normally spend a great deal of money on shipping and cannot easily present their documents in Hollywood’s industry-specific format.

“As a writer based in London, this always proved an obstacle for me when I needed to send a script to Hollywood.” explains Dan Bronzite, CEO of Nuvotech. “First I had to order the US letter size paper (we use A4 in the UK) pre-three-holed-punched (we have two or four hole punches) and brass brads (we use different types) and then ship my script via an international courier which would cost a fortune. With HSX we have streamlined the entire process so that writers can submit their scripts to agents, producers, studios and contests at the click of a button.”

Submission Tools & Tracking

Once you have created an account with Hollywood Script Express, you can customize your calendar, track submissions, manage contacts, log responses, view graphical statistics and collate feedback. All of your script management tools are conveniently centralized into a single online interface that allows you to focus on the creative writing process and not the technicalities of the business. Additional screenwriter specific services will soon be available to Hollywood Script Express clients including coverage and proof-reading.

Intellectual Property Registration

Hollywood Script Express’ intellectual property registration service assists in establishing proof of your work’s completion date by providing a digital timestamp for your uploaded script and a documented record of your claim to authorship. Your encrypted file is stored securely for five years with the option to renew and you will receive a Registration Certificate and Unique Registration number.
