Three Act Screenplay Structure

A very interesting infographic, particularly if you’re having difficulty structuring your screenplay.  I don’t entirely agree with it.  For instance, the end of the second act should be the point where the protagonist can no longer go back to their former lives, but they are too afraid to go forward.  However, it provides a useful template to get you back on to track.  Just don’t handcuff yourself to it.  Only you know the best structure for your film.  There is no one correct way to do them.


I’m skribe. I’m a writer, a film-maker and an actor. While I’m originally from Perth, Australia, I currently reside on a tropical island, the Lion City of Singapore. Fingerprint: 79A1 DC6C D367 8A31 135A 7AFA 940E 4231 D7B9 B15C If you like what you see buy me a coffee.
