Save the Cat!® Podcast: Moving the Beats
Can the sequence of the beats be changed? You might be surprised at our answer as Master Cat José Silerio and Guy Thompson discuss Begin Again, the recent release from writer-director John Carney (Once). As long as the story works for the audience — portraying a hero with clear and compelling goals, there might be opportunities to move the beats from their standard order. But understand the role each beat plays in your hero’s transformation before you move it!

Sorry. We’re working on this problem.

Hi, Good episode…I learned another way to look at the beats.
I’m curious what Jose’ and Guy think about using the “sequence/mini-movie” technique to structure a script. It might make a good episode…
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look into that.
