Writing Loglines: How to Pitch Your Screenplay
Beyond knowing proper structure and formatting, a screenwriter needs to boil an entire screenplay into a one-line pitch, called a logline or an elevator pitch. Knowing the key elements each story needs, and how to execute your concept, helps make a great first impression when you submit your script to a producer. We supply you with an easy-to-use “logline formula” in How to Write a Screenplay.
Creating a Strong Screenplay Concept
Without a unique and original concept, your screenplay won’t be marketable. Learn how to bring your story idea to life and come up with enough ideas for conflicts to write a fully flushed out and compelling script. Whether you’re writing a romantic comedy, horror, drama or sci-fi, you need a marketable concept as your foundation.
Outlining Your Screenplay
Once you learn the tricks of outlining, you’ll never have to worry about the blank page writer’s block again. Every story has a structure, and film scripts are no different. The film industry is accustomed to a certain storytelling foundation. Our free webinar draws from many of our top screenwriting resources to show you how to build a road map for your story and give executives what they crave – a script they can sell.
Creating Complex Characters for the Screen
Your screenplay is more than just plot points. It’s your characters who drive the story and make the reader want to follow them on their journey. How to Write a Screenplay shares the must-have qualities your characters need to shine and attract A-list actors. Creating multi-dimensional and flawed characters is essential to grabbing your audience and making them root for your protagonist.
