It will define the overall scope, direction, and constraints that the rest of the movie will adhere to. The parameters will determine the genre, themes, style, and general atmosphere of the movie, providing a framework for the story and characters to unfold.

    • C.

      13

    Correct Answer
    B. 17
    Explanation
    The first act ideally should be about 17 pages. This suggests that in a play or screenplay, the first act should be approximately 17 pages long. The length of the first act is important for setting up the story, introducing the characters, and establishing the tone and conflict. A longer first act allows for more development and exposition, while a shorter first act may jump right into the action. Overall, a 17-page first act strikes a balance between providing enough information and keeping the audience engaged.
