Prashanth started development of Scrite when Prime Minister Modi announced 21 days lockdown on 24th March 2020. Within three weeks, on 17th April 2020, a beta was made publicly available. Early adopters and beta testers provided a lot of feedback that helped shape the development of the app. Though the app continues to be in beta, it is usable and is being actively used by many professional and hobby screenwriters across the world.

TERIFLIX (in Kannada: ಟೆರಿಫ್ಲಿಕ್ಸ್) started in 2017 to provide on-demand spaces for private screening of films to small groups of people. When the pandemic broke, we started the Scrite project to keep our key customers, the filmmakers, engaged with the TERIFLIX brand. Eighteen months of successive lockdowns later, we noticed more traction with Scrite than with our screening spaces. TERIFLIX is now exclusively focused on building products, starting with Scrite, to help filmmakers become more productive.
