The 3-Act structure has been around since the dawn of writing, since the dawn of storytelling. In fact it has been around since the Greek antiquity and its philosophers, in particular Aristotle who proposed the definition of tragedy.

Over the past decade and especially since cinema and writing screenplays became one of the most popular ways of storytelling, a myriad of great books around the 3-Act structure – most of them inspired by the 3-Act Greek tragedy – have been published.

This reference guide is not designed to replace any of these helpful books and philosophies. Rather, it’s designed to provide you with a visual checklist as you develop and write your screenplay–something to keep by your computer, on your mobile or printed out on your wall as a comprehensive chart of the key elements of the 3-Act structure.

Instead of thumbing through pages and chapters of books you’ve read to find the section you want, this guide is a supplement that will help keep you focused on what matters most – developing your story.


  • The 3-Act Structure
  • Components of Act 1

By the end of this guide you will be able to:
