How to Write a Logline that Convinces Producers

How to Write a Logline that Convinces Producers

Today I would like to cover the importance of your #Logline. It is also called 'elevator pitch' for the reason that you must be able to explain within 10 seconds what your film is about. Imagine, you have a film producer standing in front of you, and he says ok, pitch me the film.

The Structure of a LogLine

The logline should include the The Who, What, When, Why and How.

Here is an example of the documentary logline structure of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Dune:

The protagonist: 'Cult film director ..'
The goal of the protagonist: 'Cult film directors' ambitious film adaption ...'
The antagonist or obstacle: 'Cult film directors' ambitious film adaption of a seminal science fiction novel'
