Learn how to choose the right climax.
Duration: 12 HOURS
Your screenplay will certainly amaze viewers from start to finish when the beginning, the middle, and the end—all are highly engrossing. Pragmatically this is a rare case to achieve. Typically, when the strengths of a story override the flaws, a screenplay can enjoy success. Your story may have limitations in the beginning or in the middle, but the finish of your story has an extra load to endure. The finish or the climax is the viewers’ last and final involvement with your movie. Their memories of the climax are naturally sustained in their brains. And for the same reason, the audience trust the memories of the climax when they finally evaluate your story.

What we should derive here is that even if the beginning and the middle of your story are run-of-the-mill, but good enough to make the audiences generally engaged, and the climax is just an amazing triumph, then the audience will vehemently be upbeat about your screenplay. An amazing climax can, of course trigger an otherwise ordinary story to assured celebration.
