Re: Fam Film Writer's Primer

A fun exercise is to watch movies or read novels or comics and try to figure out how that particular piece uses the Three Act Structure. I often do it with novels. It can even been seen in novels that are considered "high-brow literature," such as The Life and Times of Michael K.

Doing so, allows you to see how the Three Act Structure is used successfully and how it may have been used poorly.
