Wendall Thomas Talks Scripts: STRUCTURE: Mastering the Dreaded Second Act
The second act of a screenplay is a challenge in any genre. So, how to navigate this "desert" of the middle – particularly in the current market, which favours genre-benders like Get Out, Thor, The Big Sick or Deadpool, and complex, unconventional structures like Lion, Boyhood, Spotlight, Gone Girl, Dunkirk or I, Tonya?
This lecture examines the specific pitfalls and possibilities of the second act, through in-depth, scene-by-scene look at this "desert" in three recent and successful, soundly structured screenplays.
