Amazon Storybuilder launches in beta, gives writers a virtual corkboard to map out their next script

Amazon continues to target upcoming scriptwriters, directors and filmmakers with Amazon Storybuilder, a new screenwriting tool that lets you jot down ideas with virtual post-it notes and a corkboard.

Currently in beta, Storybuilder is a pretty bare bones product for now, with only a couple of different templates for various narrative structures. The homepage shows all of your notes in a vertical hierarchy, with the option to separate them into different groups running left to right.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

A double-click will bring up the relevant notecard, in addition to any attached notes – outlined in yellow – and images underneath. Horizontal arrows let you move forward and backwards between cards, and it offers a standard drag-and-drop interface for deleting items.

Amazon Storybuilder is free to use and follows the release of Amazon Storyteller last June, which converts scripts into dynamic, professional storyboards.
