As part of his final year curriculum of his Master training in Computer Science, Simon has started his internship at Limecraft. He will develop a script editor and a breakdown editor. The script editor should allow the user to write a script from scratch, respecting the Hollywood formatting standards. The breakdown editor should enable the user to assign elements from the script to industry standard breakdown categories. Both tools should be compatible with *Flow*.
