HollywoodHelper

 

Description

For actors, Hollywood Helper / Broadway Buddy helps you learn the lines of your scripts without lugging around printed scripts.

New audio clip features: record/edit/play clips per line or per block of lines for you or your scene mates. Drag clip icons where-ever you want on the script itself.

Works fine on iPad too, especially at 2x display mode. Just get it on iTunes on your computer, then sync your iPad w/ iTunes...the app will be transferred.

File sharing with iTunes is enabled, get your scripts to the app thru iTunes!

You provide your own scripts in plain text format. Your words are displayed in industrial-smelted Courier typeface, fixed and unchangable the way Smith-Corona intended.

Automated search & hilite of your lines.

Beat Editor...position beat marks without your finger obscuring the text you want to mark. Move marks that are already there.

Now with actor-editable SUBTEXT in floating sticky note for each dialog block, and the VERB WHEEL selector to let the actor associate an active verb with each dialog block using your myVerbs list.

No longer any need to install a program to your computer to transfer files to this app, use iTunes file sharing instead.

LEARN:

- When in Learn mode, the app will find all the blocks of text for your character and hilight them in pale yellow.

- Next and Prev-ious buttons on the main script view will allow you to quickly skip thru the script to find your lines.

- A couple of cue lines from the prior character's dialog are displayed in white background immediately above your lines when you use the Next/Prev buttons.

REHEARSE:

- When in Rehearse mode, your character's dialog is masked out (hidden) in solid yellow.

- If you forget your lines and need a quick cue, touch one of the solid yellow lines and it will temporarily turn transparent.

File format:

The app displays ordinary text files from Mac or PC including international character sets, so you will have to export a text file from whatever system the script is stored in (such as Word, Final Draft, PDF, etc).

HH/BB will automatically remove any indents at the beginning of lines to make your script easier to read on the phone.

Your place is saved:

The app automatically saves your place in the script. The next time you start it, everything is as you left it. If you have to take a call while rehearsing, you will not lose your place.

Demo:

A couple of public domain works by Wm.Shakespeare are installed with the app for demo purposes. Go to the Setup tab, Change Script to twelfthniteintro.txt, then type a character's name such as duke or viola into the CHARACTER field. A search is performed to hilight all of that character's lines. Then go back to the Script tab and press the blue Next button. You will be taken to the first place the character's name appears in the play. From then on it should be obvious.

Other:

The app automatically searches for up-case character names or "as-is" text.

When it finds your CHARACTER's name, dialog will be hilighted up to the next "double space" (blank line) in the script. Hence, if there are song lyrics with blank lines to indicate verse or chorus breaks, it will not hilight all of the song. Learning songs is a bit different than learning dialog, so you may find this to be acceptable.

Decent start

Cool idea but needs to support PDF files, I can't get any scripts to upload as scripts...they are just a bunch of characters, even when the .ext is converted to .txt....let's get this resolved guys...the interface is plain too
