Entering & Exiting the Story 2: Placement of Prologues - Lesson Now Playing


Entering & Exiting the Story 2: Placement of Prologues

Feb 13, 2010

Prologue - Lesson 2

Where to place the Prologue in your story:

  1. Prior to the inciting incident.
  2. Immediately after the inciting incident, but prior to the story's progressive complications.
  3. After the story's crisis and climax.
  4. The placement in time is outside, or irrelevant, to the story told.
Examples Used:
  • Ingmar Bergman's film WILD STRAWBERRIES
  • George Lucas and Steven Spielberg's film RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
  • Tennessee William's play THE GLASS MENAGERIE
  • Joseph Conrad's novella THE HEART OF DARKNESS
  • Max Frisch's play THE FIREBUGS

SCSaunders: Candide & ScreamingPanda (Redundant Post)

I'm not sure if my reply to screamingpanda got accepted. FYI - change the final number of this page's address from "31" to "29" and then hit "enter." 

Or copy and paste, http://www.storylogue.com/docs/lessons.html?documentId=29 and then hit enter.

I second Candide's question. Prologue Study 1 appears to be absent. Is this intentional?

This starts with a review of Prologue, part one, but I can't find Prologue Lesson 1. It's really quite annoying when you wait for the lesson to load and then find it's not the one you want anyway, and what's more the one you want doesn't seem to be there. Please could you address this.

Good Afternoon,

I would like to get opinion on how to decide the Narrator in fiction film in case of film being in one long flashback. (Third option of placing the prologue.)If it is a multiplot story with more than one main character then how does one choose the narrator whose POV is the film. Can it be someone who is not the main character?

Regards,
Ranjeet Bahadur
