Sequence Method

Apparently, this is how students at the University of Southern California were taught screenwriting. You break up a story into Eight Sequences because, you know, reels were only ten minutes long--so why not base the sequencing of an entire narrative on something arbitrary like the size of a film reel? Subjective points-of-view by definition lack accuracy, yet clue Authors in on the experience of running through a narrative. Take this bit of story structure with plenty grains of salt.
