screenwriting dramatic structure

It's good to be aware of screenwriting dramatic structure and at the same time leave room for your own creativity.  That is, if you feel you should write your plot "backwards," then why not?  That is, for a thriller/mystery, for example, you start by already knowing who the murderer is, and then instead go backwards and examine why this character committed the crime.


Or, for sports scripts, show the team win the trophy, and then go back and observe the challenges that lead up to this.


Screenwriting dramatic structure starts with a "hook," something that will immediately catch your viewer's attention.  It can also be called something like a "strong cup of coffee" to wake up your audience, visually or internally.  Then continue on with your plot.  This is act I.  In Act II--the story gets developed--that is layers are added to the plot and layers are added to the characters--that is, their situation, thoughts, views, actions.  And in Act III--The main characters make a decisive choice and act on it.  Then there is a brief wrapping up at the end--the consequences of the main characters' decisive actions.  Find out how you can "end" your script by watching a few of your favorite movies and how they end their story.
