Many elements make a screenplay exciting, such as story, conflict, character desire, and theme. But without the proper structure, the script often fails to engage the audience and turns into a dud. Using Blake Snyder’s “Save the Cat” methodology, we analyze a 15-beat structure to see how screenwriters create entertaining blueprints for iconic films, such as The Wizard of Oz and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity Wars. Then we take our original ideas and develop the key “beats” or plot points of our own stories so we can create a roadmap to track our hero’s outer journey and inner transformation. By the end of the session, you have a pitchable logline and a completed beats outline, giving you the foundation needed to craft a compelling screenplay.
