Came across this excellent article about the myth of the 3 act structure, and how the 5 act structure is better. It’s written in the style of the HULK, but don’t let that put you off!
Apologies if it’s been posted before. Just thought I’d share it, if it hasn’t. I think you’ll all find it quite interesting.
I agree with a lot of the points. With 3 act structure, that big middle bit seems so scary and daunting. A structure with more than 3 acts just makes a lot of sense to me.
Anyway, the link: filmcrithulk.wordpress.com/2011/ … structure/
