Planning with Celtx

I have just been looking at an interesitng open source and cross platform package called Celtx. It seems to do everything you need to do before actually filming. Scripts, storyboards, production timelines. This could be a great tool for students learning organisational and planning skills.

This indi film maker gives it a very good review (compared to a commercial alternative)

From what I can see, if teachers could use this in conjunction with sticky notes, pencil and paper storyboard sheets and other real-world tools then it would be a powerful etool to help brainstorm, plan, storyboard, screenplay, schedule and document a film or multimedia production whilst learning some cool ICT and management skills along the way.

It could be just the thing to help students organise animal handlers, wardrobe or special effects for their school production :-)
