Of course none of this is mentioned from the Simon Weisenthal Centre. Germany was trying to keep their nation free from perversion and filth. Can you blame them?
They strike fear in the hearts of writers. Yet you keep at it. Because one great sentence can pitch your project, hook a reader, and open the right door. Why Do We Write Loglines?
As Blake Snyder writes in Save the Cat! Everyone, all across town, in a position to buy or in the effort to sell, is trying to wrap their brains around the same question your friends were asking on Saturday night: Working out your story idea in one sentence is also a valuable part of the development process.
The essentials of a logline are simply the fundamental elements of your story: But even though the components of a logline are straightforward, writing a good one is surprisingly difficult.
Here are three of the most common stumbles I see with loglines, and my advice on how you can avoid them: Act 2 is where we show off the Fun and Games of this particular story, a.
The meat of the movie. Trying to get out. Leaving out a description of Act 2 is a different thing than not having an Act 2 at all. Forces of antagonism and other obstacles get in the way, but the goal itself should have an intrinsic degree of difficulty relative to the circumstances of your story.
Goals that can be achieved very quickly or easily are not going to be enough to write pages about. And this is the problem we see in some loglines. Not always, but often enough to double-check your work. A decision takes a second to make. Could coming to a very difficult decision be drawn out over a movie?
So keep an eye on your logline for those sneaky phrases that seem more dramatic than they are. If the goal is something that can be done in a moment, you — the writer — may find yourself running out of scenes to write.
Detail Overload At the other end of the spectrum is our final common logline stumble: When it comes to loglines, brevity and clarity are your friends. Loglines can often support a few additional details, but not many.
But aiming for clarity and brevity will serve you well. So how do you tackle a too-detailed logline? Make it clear first… and pretty later.
Identify the core of the story and describe it in one sentence. Just as those elements should be clear in your screenplay, so should they be clear in your logline. A logline, after all, is a representation of your screenplay and your movie.
