4 Act & Mythogolical Structures Deconstructed


If you click on this button –> 4 ACT and MYTH <– you will be taken to magical pdf document that will show you how all films break down in a very general sense. When trying to hit your plot points remember to divide your act breaks by the length (pages) of your screenplay. So, if you’re writing a feature, the inciting incident could be anywhere from pg 8-17, but when writing a short (say 10 pages) it should occur within the first page, possibly before.
