We had alot of fun putting the ET tribute video together. Not only is ET one of my favorite films of all time, Spielberg & Mathison’s timeless tale lines up flawlessly with Blake Snyder’s beat sheet. If your a fellow “Cat!” (meaning you have read the Save The Cat! book), you will feel right at home watching the Beat Sheet play out in this classic 80′s film. If your an aspiring Cat! or just curious about the screenwriting & filmmaking process in general, this is an easy and digestable way to see how a great commercial movie works in terms of “story beats”.
