Comparison Of Film Script Plot Structure Outlines

This chart is an amalgamation of dozens of film script plot outlines I found on the internet, mostly on Pinterest. By putting these charts next to each other, you can see patterns, but it also becomes obvious there’s no single correct plot structure. Each outline focuses on different aspects of different kinds of stories with varying levels of detail. Many of the outlines and plot points I found were modified versions of other people’s, which is all the more reason not to put your full faith in any one source’s method.
