10 Great Loglines

How to Write Your Own Logline

By Michael Barmish


Loglines. They seem simple, but they’re not. It takes skill to distill a story into 25-35 words or so. You need to be able sell your story, to pitch it properly to draw the interest of a Director, an Agent or Producer. It’s vital to make your story sound exciting, yet keep it as concise as possible.

But the logline is also very useful during the writing process. Having your logline posted in front of you, on top of your keyboard or at the bottom of your screen, always reminds you what your story is about.

In addition to creating the best pitch for your project, the logline helps you to refocus on your subject and to find the right answers to the many questions raised along the development of your story.
