Screenplay notes – GradSchoolPapers.com
The Screenplay Notes assignment is a concise structural analysis of the feature screenplay
The Proposal by Pete Chiarelli.
Read the screenplay for The Proposal carefully. Much can be gained from reading it twice.
Your analysis should be based on the screenplay, not the film.
Prepare a one page, double-spaced report on how three-act structure is used to tell the
story. Identify the events (turning points) that mark the ends of Acts One and Two and
elaborate on how these events spin the story in a new direction.
