Using Storyist with Blake Snyders Method

Recommended Posts

Hi Jim,

 

Welcome to the forums.

 

I am new to Storyist and wondered if anyone else out there has developed scripts based on Blake Snyders methods. If so, any recommendations in setting up a template in Storyist to do this or how to begin. Any recommendations?

 

One way to do it would be:

 

1) Create a new Storyist project from the Screenplay template.

 

2) Add a plot point (sheet) for each of the beats in the Save the Cat beat sheet.

 

3) Save the project as a template (File > Save as Template).

 

This new template will now appear in the template chooser. Use it to start a new project, and develop the outline/synopsis. When you know in which scene the beat occurs, drag the plot sheet to the collage for the scene.

Hey Steve,

 

Thanks for your quick response. I'll give this a shot.
