“Poor, poor three-act structure. So much to offer. So misunderstood”. Jennine Lanouette‘s article Save the baby! On the Benefits of the Three-Act Screenplay Structure is a first-class, badly needed statement on screenwriting. It deals with the mental process of writing, the structure as a freeing tool and, the light and dark sides of the Save the Cat and the Hero Journey’s schools of thought. It includes a link to a History of the Three-Act Structure. Very valuable material.
