The Art & Craft of Creating a Compelling Logline
Ensure you pique a reader or agent’s interest in your work by crafting an unforgettable logline that sums up your story in an articulate, compelling sentence.
About this course:Having a ready and intriguing answer to the question “What’s it about?” is one of the most important things a screenwriter can do to help advance their career. Most people’s attention spans are short, those of agents, managers and producers are arguably even shorter. You want to be able to pique your listener’s interest as concisely yet evocatively as possible. This one-day class includes a discussion of the elements that make for a successful logline, exercises designed to practice crafting them, and time for workshopping your own loglines to help you create your strongest version possible. Come prepared with two or three ideas to workshop in-class.
