“Daedalus Howell is one of the most brilliant and inspirational filmmakers/speakers I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. His gift is his ability to think outside the box… Daedalus invites the audience to think beyond conventional wisdom to what is truly possible.” – Anne Jordan, founder, Storytellers Expo
Your Straight-Up, No-Frills Movie Story Map
So, you wanna write a movie but don’t want to waste your creative energy re-inventing the wheel? Here’s your simple guide to screenplay structure – a no frills, PDF primer, for five bucks.
Brainstorm, outline and write your screenplay with this focused distillation of screenplay structure that draws from the same archetypal material as Christopher Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey, Joseph Campbell’s Hero With a Thousand Faces, and the work of C.G. Jung, but in a helluva handier form.
This is a lean, mean, down and dirty, beat-by-beat guide to screenplay structure, without fancy diagrams and self-help hoopla. It just tells what generally happens when and where in a by-the-numbers (literally page numbers!) screenplay in a brief, 12-page, summary form.
Sure, there’s a little style thrown in but otherwise it’s a “just the facts ma’am” roadmap for your screenplay that I use myself. – Daedalus Howell
