One of the key resources of this website will be the creation and categorizing of beat sheets! These handy tools dissect movies of all kinds — both Indie and Blockbuster — according to the 15 structural beats outlined in my book. I call it the Blake Snyder Beat Sheet (AKA the BS2) and it’s a great way to find clues in story structure for the movie you’re working on.
I’m about to start the ball rolling with BS2’s for Miss Congeniality, Wedding Crashers and the Sundance winner Maria Full of Grace, and believe it or not, all fit perfectly into the form — most movies do!
I hope you will feel free to add to this collection, submit your beat sheets as “Comments” and we’ll post them with your name to see if we agree with your assessment.
