LOGLINES AND SYNOPSIS
The art of conveying both your story’s concept and theme, and tell the full arc of the story.
Here is a template LOGLINE you can use – just fill in the blanks:
(TITLE) is a (GENRE) about a (DESCRIPTION OF HERO), who after (INCITING EVENT), wants to (OUTER GOAL) by (PLAN OF ACTION). This becomes increasingly difficult because (OBSTACLES AND COMPLICATIONS)
(TITLE) is a (GENRE) about a (DESCRIPTION OF HERO) who must (OUTER GOAL) or else (DIRE THINGS WILL HAPPEN)
To pitch your screenplay effectively, you need to have a compelling and clear LOGLINE and SYNOPSIS. In order to write one, you must have a clear understanding of your script.
When writing your logline, try to answer these questions:
1) What is my concept? My main conflict and story?
2) What is my theme? What am I trying to say with this script?
