Story Structure Secrets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When it comes to crafting a compelling story, it’s imperative to identify and emphasize the greatest themes present inside your existing raw materials. In this session, you will learn classic story-structure techniques that can be applied to films and videos of any length as well as concepts you can use to define and create a story arc. In this session you’ll learn about what to look for in your own footage to build upon universal themes while creating well-placed beats that follow the rules of good structure.
Learn how to hook the viewer with a compelling opening, structure questions that engage the audience, and identify when it’s time to move from one scene to another. Using examples, you will see how the rules of three-act structure can be applied to films of any length. From shorts to features or documentaries, your film will benefit by applying classic techniques to create strong story structure.
