Syd Field ‘Paradigm’

Syd Field, the author of ‘Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting’, developed the ‘Paradigm’ by adapting classic three act structure. He added a mid-point to a movie which breaks the second act in two. He also detailed smaller ‘pinches’, which concentrate the story towards the point that comes next. This is one of the most popular screenplay plans. Visit the Syd Field website to learn more about his books and work.
