At SoCreate, our mission is to unite the world through storytelling. We will change the way content is developed for screens of all sizes. We will make screenwriting accessible to everyone, empower professionals to expand their creative horizons, and open doors for people with amazing stories who never thought they could contribute.
SoCreate, founded in 2015, is a privately held company that’s funding the development of revolutionary cloud-based screenwriting software. The SoCreate Screenwriting Software will make it fun and easy to turn anyone’s amazing ideas into a TV or movie script. In addition, SoCreate is building an e-commerce backend that will power financials for SaaS companies (such as SoCreate Screenwriting Software) in direct to consumer sales. Since its inception, SoCreate has completed hundreds of hours of research, design, and development on the screenwriting software and its elements. Soon, SoCreate plans to launch beta trials to interested screenwriters who are tired of wrestling with frustrating, traditional screenwriting software, who want a single place to take their ideas from inspiration to completion, and who desire a software that will allow their creativity to flow in new, unbounded ways. We believe that if we work hard and stay focused, we will become the primary service for writing dialogue-driven stories for stages and screens.
