In our opinion, the easiest way to write a good logline is in the form of:
[Film Title] is a [genre] IN WHICH a [protagonist] struggles to [challenge to overcome].
Problematic loglines often use passive language and the word about, which can find you expressing your intentions instead of the action. Something you want to avoid at any cost is a logline that focuses on how you intend the viewer to feel instead of what they’re going to see.
For example (don’t do):
“The Last Thing She Did” is a transcendent human comedy about the way we connect through laughter and memories.
Nice, but it doesn’t tell us a single thing about the script. We don’t know who the characters are, what it’s about, where it’s set, and we’re vague on the genre. When you use a logline, remember you are pitching your story to practical people who want to know if they can make your script into a film that they can sell. Save your beautiful writing for your dialogue, and your writer’s commentary
Every single submission gets accepted.
Accept movie trailers. Screenplay and story trailers.
