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 © 2014.

To install and utilize ScripThreads, you will need the following three things:

1) A Mac computer running OSX 10.6 or higher with a 64 bit processor or Windows 32 machine.

2) Some screenplay files in HTML format.

3) Patience and a willingness to tinker. We are teaching classes and working on several other research projects. Unfortunately, we don’t have time to help trouble shoot problems or offer technical support.
