Loglines: The Long and Short on Writing Strong Loglines
At a Glance
Loglines: The Long and Short on Writing Strong Loglines provides writers with detailed information about the importance of loglines for feature films and television and how to write them. Over 250 examples of classic and original loglines are provided for writers to study, be inspired by, and even use to develop into a screenplay.
A logline is the spine, the cornerstone, of a screenplay. In one sentence, of only 35 - 45 words, a writer must be able to distill down the very essence of their film story, including protagonist, antagonist, setting, inciting incident, conflict, and jeopardy. (The last sentence describing a logline took 33 words.)
Writing a logline well should not be taken for granted. The importance of a strong logline cannot be underestimated and many times the logline is the only exposure a writer may have to producers, agents, and managers.
This quick reference guide can be used to learn the art and craft of writing the all-important logline, as well as an inspirational tool for writers or producers searching for their next blockbuster.
