    Only 6 plots to every film, book, show

    We knew this intuitively, but here are some details.

    There are just SIX plots in every film, book and TV show ever made: Researchers reveal the 'building blocks' of storytelling

    A major new analysis of over 1,700 stories identified the core plots 'which form the building blocks of complex narratives'. Shown, the plot of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which researchers found has the 'rise, fall rise' plot.

    An emotional arc is similar to a plot building block that tells a story by generating an emotional response from the reader, reports MIT Review.
    For example, 'man falls into hole, man gets out of hole' or one of the most well-know, 'boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl'.

    And prior to Computational Story lab at the University of Vermont's study most believed there was anywhere from three to more than thirty different arcs.
    To conduct the study, researchers used sentiment analysis, which is the idea that words have both positive and emotional impacts, to map the emotional arcs.
    Words can be measured of the emotional valence of text and how it changes from moment to moment.

    The team then analyzed the emotional polarity of 'word windows' and slid these windows through the text to create a picture of how the emotional valence changes.

    WHAT ARE THE SIX ARCS?

    Fall-rise-fall: 'Oedipus Rex', 'The Wonder Book of Bible Stories', 'A Hero of Our Time' and 'The Serpent River'.

    Rise-fall: 'Stories from Hans Andersen', 'The Rome Express', 'How to Read Human Nature' and 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali'.

    Fall-rise: 'The Magic of Oz', 'Teddy Bears', 'The Autobiography of St. Ignatius' and 'Typhoon'.

    Steady fall: 'Romeo and Juliet', 'The House of the Vampire', 'Savrola' and 'The Dance'.

    Steady rise:
    'Alice's Adventures Underground', 'Dream', 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol' and 'The Human Comedy'.

    Rise-fall-rise: 'Cinderella', 'A ChristmasX` Carol', 'Sophist' and 'The Consolation of Philosophy'.


    The most popular stories have been found to follow the 'fall-rise-fall' and 'rise-fall' arcs.

    I read Animal Farm.

    I wasn't aware that it was made into a movie. I wouldn't see it. IMO, that is a book that cannot be put into film.
