EVENT ORDER: EVENT ORDER Shifting Past, Present, & Future through Editing has redefined the idea that a good story must have a neat beginning, middle and end – but the formula pieces are typically still there, just in a different order… CLASSICAL FORMULA: CLASSICAL FORMULA ASSIGNMENT #2 Pick a show you already watch and apply the Classic Formula to its script to identify the following elements from the episode: a.       Describe the EXPOSITION: sets the context in which action occurs b.      Describe the POINT OF ATTACK: the first crisis c.       Describe the RISING ACTION: more conflicts and trouble brewing d.      Describe the CLIMAX: major crisis or turning point e.      Describe the FALLING ACTION & RESOLUTION: wins or loses (or not?) CLASSICAL FORMULA: CLASSICAL FORMULA ASSIGNMENT #2 2)      Did the show in question adhere to the basic formula above? If not, how did it differ? 3)      Be sure to be thorough – remember that you’re writing this for someone who has NOT necessarily seen the show in question. 4)      The show can be a sitcom, a drama, etc. – as long as it follows a narrative form; make sure it’s not news/sports/politics etc. so stay away from “real life” events. You can use reality-based programming, however, as that subscribes to classical writing formulas.
