We’re all story-tellers, whether we know it or not.
We like to listen to other’s stories and we like to tell our own. Sometimes these stories are true, sometimes they’re fiction, but either way we like to experience this world (or a different one) through someone else.
To enter the contest you must comment below with a logline for a movie you've always wanted to watch or write.
What’s a logline, you ask?
Yay, the educational portion of my blog!
A logline is a one or two sentence summary of your film that not only conveys your premise, but also gives the reader emotional insight into the story as a whole. That’s lifted directly from Google.
Sounds difficult, doesn't it? It’s not difficult. It’s difficult to do well. But look, Roberto Orci did a logline for Star Trek Into Darkness, Adam Leff did one for Bio-Dome, and Edward Neumeier did one for Starship Troopers, so really, how hard could it be?
Here’s a decent guide to writing a logline:
And here’s an example of one to get you started:
A young CIA agent must infiltrate the domain of a ruthless Mexican drug-kingpin and rescue the daughter of a billionaire oilman before the kidnapper’s deadline.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, as someone once said.
