Exercise 1: Major and Minor beats

A story spine split into eight major beats.
Part A: Pick a scene or sequence from one of your three favorite movies and do the following:
  • What is the major beat in the story that it depicts?
  • Break this major beat down into a bullet point list of minor beats.
Remember, each minor beat represents one event or idea (this happens, this happens, this happens...).
A scene split into minor beats.
Part B: Pick two major beats from your own story spine and break them down into a bullet point list of minor beats.
