Film treatment templates for Apple Keynote

This post is about Keynote themes designed for film treatments for film directors and Production companies.

Apple Keynote is an free productivity app for Mac that enables you to put together presentations really fast for print or for screen. You can start your layout from scratch or easily change an existing theme’s design. Like its infamous PC counterpart it also has basic animation options, for slides projection. You won’t need these most of the time but Keynote is a solid app when it comes to its main quality: layout speed. If you use a Mac and need to design film presentations for your pitches these Keynote themes will save you even more time.

Apple Pages Templates for Storyboards & Presentations

With a recent update, Apple Pages (7.0) now has Masters, like Keynote. Granted, it cannot rival the editing scope of Adobe InDesign to produce and publish layouts. That is a given. But it is a sound solution to create beautiful documents, fast. And thanks to this improvement, it now makes sense to use it for storyboards as well. 

With a template, you can just drop images in the placeholder frames and add notes in the formatted text boxes. Here are a few Apple Pages templates to help you design storyboard presentations in no time.

If you use Pages in your workflow and need to create a neat storyboard layout, one of these templates should help. Also, you can download Pages for free from the Apple App Store-you will find it in Productivity Apps.
