"Script structure is a critical component of how to tell a story effectively - with plot points positioned for the most dramatic and emotional impact.
For the past 5 years, I have helped screenwriters construct their stories effectively through a constructive review of their Sequence-Scene plot structure.
Such a critique is useful at al stages of writing, but especially needs to be done before submission to improve marketability."
Structure: Sequence-Scene organization, plot pacing and plot point positioning.

"...Melvyn's 19 Sequence Model shows that almost all films follow the same pattern.
His theory helped me unlock the Act 3 of a story I had been unable to resolve for months!"
