ScripThreads is a software tool for the digital analysis and visualization of screenplays. ScripThreads allows you to visualize character interactions, identify patterns, and export statistical breakdowns.

For more on the tool’s functionality, visualizations, and research uses, read our essay: Eric Hoyt, Kevin Ponto, and Carrie Roy, “Visualizing and Analyzing the Hollywood Screenplay with ScripThreads,” Digital Humanities Quarterly 8.4 (2014).

ScripThreads is still under development, but we have made a downloadable prototype freely available for educational and evaluative purposes. The program was created by Kevin Ponto with Eric Hoyt and Carrie Roy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It is the property of the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System © 2015.
