How to Write Original Three Act Structure Screenplay

There truly is a discipline to screenplay composition. Different structures will require certain skills that are unique to it. This is true with a screenplay which has three acts. A writer has to be careful in what he or she is doing.

The Three Act Structure Involves Time

A rule of thumb in screenplay penmanship is that every page of dialogue is equal to one minute of screen exposure. This means that a screenplay of 120 pages is going to be approximately three hours long. That is important thing to keep in mind. The attention of an audience can be held only so long before the people get bored. Going over three hours for a new scriptwriter is very risky business.

Certain Things Happen in a Three Act Structure Screenplay

The acts are simply the beginning, the middle, and the end. Each section has its own activity that is unique to it. Act I is the inciting incident and a plot point needs to be made clear here. The middle section is going to be where another plot point is going to be, and in Act III the climax must appear.

You have approximately 30 pages in each act, and you need to measure your dialogue and action accordingly. That is going to mean either editing or adding to the screenplay. Going over the three hour limit can be a problem, but going too far under is also going to cause difficulty. A three act screenplay that does not have at least 100 pages may mean that the story is not completely thought out. Within the structures of the three act screenplay there is a fair amount of pressure and work that needs to be completed. It may be smart idea for you to seek professional help in producing this artistic work.
