MA Writing for Script & Screen: final project – reflective blog

Having analysed Happy Valley season 1 episode by episode, act by act, I decided to write my TV pilot in 5 act structure.

I am using the same colour code as I used in my HV analysis, with an extra colour as I am working with two protagonists (my first time attempting this).

I am certainly not expecting a perfect result from this first attempt at a TV pilot but hopefully something which I can continue to work on when the MA has finished and something which I can submit with an element of confidence that it will pass.

Here is the way I have colour coded the first act, inspired by my analysis of the structure of Happy Valley.

What about you? Are you colour-coding your outlines?

What do you think?
