Michael looks at turning points based upon the 3 Act Structure:
Note 4 important things.
- Each Act is now split in two with a Turning Point separating them (there are 5 Turning Points, according to Hauge)
- We now have 6 subActs according to those Turning Points
- The Turning Points have an alloted appearance based on a percentage of the whole size of the screenplay. This is important, since 25% of a 2 hour film (30 Minutes) is different from 25% of a 3 hour film (45 Minutes).
- 2 Turning Points are set, as per beginning/ending of Acts 1, 2 and 3. 3 Turning Points have an estimated appearance schedule.
