For $199, the same technology driving blockbuster video game characters is available to animators on a shoestring budget.

10 Years - In Search Of A Logo

A component of the regular UI changes has been the changing / improving (IMHO) of the ScriptSpot logo. While early logo attempts were certainly not the best from a graphic design POV they also didn't do much to define what the site was.

The current logo is based on the idea that ScriptSpot is a global community. The dots surrounding the large blue ball signify people - like you - all around the world who contribute their tools for the rest of us to use on ScriptSpot.

New Search Functionality Unveiled

I am proud to announce an entirely new search system is available on ScriptSpot. The new search engine runs on the Amazon cloud computing service so it's fast, allows for easy filtering of searches and provides content recommendations for similar content. Technologically speaking this is a huge advancement and will serve as a foundation for changes in the years to come.

10 Years - The Changing Face of ScriptSpot

One thing that has changed dramatically from the early days of ScriptSpot is the interface. The original site was basically a glorified Excel file displayed in a web browser - there was no ranking, no searching, no comments and no way to add content. When ScriptSpot started I had no idea it would grow into the community it has thus the interface has changed with the needs of the site. With more and more content we needed a better way to filter out what we didn't want, a better way to search, a way to communicate and a way to participate.
