Abstract:

Every screenplay needs an attention-grabbing beginning and a satisfying ending, but those elements are nothing without a strong, well-crafted second act. The middle section of the story represents the most critical and, not surprisingly, the most difficult part of a story to construct--every writer knows about "act-two problems." Here, writer Halperin discusses how to make sure that structure and plot push the action forward and support the evolution of the characters, while keeping the audience engaged and involved.--From publisher description.
