In this newly discoSTC!_PodcastDvered audio of a Save the Cat!® Beat Sheet Workshop, Blake Snyder describes Bad Guys Close In, All Is Lost, Dark Night of the Soul, and Break into Three. Blake also talks about the caterpillar and the butterfly, the death of old ideas, and thesis, antithesis and synthesis = transformation. Unfortunately, the tape ends before he discusses the Finale beat, but we have attached a pdf of Chapter 3 from Blake’s third book, Save the Cat!® Strikes Back: More Trouble for Screenwriters to Get Into… and Out of, which includes a description of the Five-Point Finale. (Please note that Blake discusses the fifteenth beat, Final Image, in Part One of this podcast series, during his explanation of the Opening Image.)
