Save the Cat!®
software developer Bob McFarlane has created a cool new app for actors called Acting Partner.

Acting Partner lets actors run lines over and over again, wherever and whenever they want.

Imagine running lines while stuck in traffic, working out, walking the dog, even sitting on a folding chair waiting to audition. Well now you can – with Acting Partner. Just try getting your roommate to do that for you.

Here’s how it works. Simply open Acting Partner on your iPhone or iPad Air or later and import a PDF, Final Draft 8/9, or Screenwriter MMX of your script.

And, when you identify your character, Acting Partner will create a scene reading for each scene in which your character appears.

The “director” will queue you at the start of each reading and you’ll hear a beep when you’ve reached the end of the section so you know when to “take it from the top.”

Simulator Screen Shot Apr 19, 2016, 10.51.01 AMActing Partner also identifies all the characters with dialogue and creates a character list for you so you can assign different voices to each character. For each character, you can choose from pre-selected character voices or create your own custom voices.

If you’re working on a tv show, you can start your next episode with all the recurring characters and their voices.

Simulator Screen Shot Apr 19, 2016, 10.54.31 AMActing Partner isn’t just for actors. Producers and Development Executives love having Acting Partner read them scripts.

All that is required is the Acting Partner app loaded onto an iPhone or iPad Air or later, a PDF, Final Draft 8/9, or Screenwriter MMX script, and a good charge.

Priced under $20, Acting Partner is affordable, fun, and it really works!

Created by the makers of ScriptE (the industry-leading Digital Script Supervision Software), Acting Partner is built on proven technology and backed by superior tech support.
