Main Task Research: Freytags Pyramid

I have been researching documentaries a lot during the summer break, one aspect that I have came across that I found particularly interesting is a theory called Freytag Pyramid. This particular theory is mainly aimed at films but it can be applied to a short documentary films too and works in the same way.

According to Freytag a film is divided into five parts, which is often referred to as the narrative structure: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and denouement. This is the context that myself and Joe will be be structuring our documentary upon.
