Study Film: Breakdowns of Hollywood Movies

Different genres of movies require different amounts of steps. Dramas are typically around 35-40 steps because they usually have longer scenes than Thrillers, Comedies and Action and Adventure movies which are normally around 45 steps with more action and less dialogue.

To help plan your project, Script Studio allows you to simultaneously refer to produced feature film outlines and gauge the progress of your own story in contrast to some of the most successful Hollywood movies. So if you get stuck on step 15 and wonder if your structure is working, simply select your movie Reference Outline and see what happens at the same time in this example.

For instance, has your antagonist entered the story too late? Or perhaps your Hero has still not had his call to adventure? By comparing your own character arcs, escalating conflicts, plot points and three act structure with the pros, you will be able to amend mistakes in your own pacing and produce a well-structured screen story!
