Macmillan Software are breaking out of the Edsoft mould with a new series called the Professional Touch. The first three titles in the series are World Cup Soccer, Magic and Screenplay. The book and software packs are aimed at those home users who demand more from their software than a maximum body count of vaporised aliens but who alternatively don't want to sit down at their micro to study for a degree in molecular physics.
Screenplay is a guide to creating your own TV programmes. The book gives you the background on TV and film production techniques and the software gives you the opportunity to put those techniques into practice. Characters can be designed and animated and dialogue, scenery, sound effects and soundtrack can be added to produce your own program. Using video you can transform your program into a programme.
