Season 3 Episode 9 | Recorded Mar 4th, 2020 | Series: Friends Without Benefits

Weaving the Storybeats of Your Fourth Act

And finally, we weave together the final Storybeats of our group project, Friends Without Benefits. Taking cues from current events, we show how to effectively tie the personal concerns of the Main Character with the central problem in the Objective Story Throughline. Compared with our work in the First Act, the Fourth Act finds Beats so tightly woven together that they almost strike a single chord of harmony with the story's central Premise.
