Typical Screenplay format:Beginning: Opening image should make some sort of impression; early in the beginning the viewer should be hooked in some way and the story should be set up…..Foreshadowing should take place in the beginning, although it could occur later, as well….Fairly early in the story, there should be a catalyst: something happens to give the central character a goal, desire, mission, need, or problem. The story usually begins with life in balance. The central character might have a problem, but it is a problem he/she has always had. The catalyst knocks the character’s life out of balance, and the rest of the movie is spent getting things back into balance. The beginning ends in a Big Event which is more dramatic than the catalyst and really sets the story in motion………..Middle: focuses mostly on complications, conflicts, and twists in the story. There is rising conflict. About half-way through the middle, there is the Pinch when another major event occurs. Something happens that makes the character become fully committed, or the motivation for achieving a goal becomes fully clear, or the stakes are raised for the character and his/her goal. The character now takes even stronger actions. The rising conflict intensifies, the pace quickens until the worst thing that could happen happens, which is the Crisis: the major turning point that forces the story to the Ending (act 3) where the character takes the last final action, and thus resolves the story. The ending begins where the middle ended, with the Crisis in which all looks lost or in which it is obvious the story must go one way or another. This leads to the Showdown which pits the central character against the opposing character or force in the highest point of conflict, known also as the Climax. This is the biggest event or series of events of the movie because everything in the movie has led up to it….Finally, the movie ends with The Resolution: in which all loose ends are tied together and any remaining subplots are resolved. Either during the Climax or the resolution, the realization takes place when the central character realizes something new about him / herself, or the viewer sees some visible or spoken evidence of growth in the character. The final result must be revealed to the audience and understood by the central character.
