Objective

Your logline is your one-sentence movie pitch. It’s what producers and agents want to hear before they’ll even glance at your script. Ideally, you should have a solid logline in place before you even start writing your script, because if your idea doesn’t work as a logline, you can be pretty damn sure it won’t work as a script.

Winning our monthly competition comes with its share of perks, but everyone who enters this contest comes out ahead, because every single logline submitted receives detailed feedback in five days or less. For an entry fee of just $9.90, LA Screenwriter will give you a detailed breakdown of your logline’s strengths and weaknesses and provide you with suggestions for making your logline stronger.

You don’t need to have written the script to submit a logline, and you can submit as many loglines as you like each month, including variations of the same logline. Show More

LA-Screenwriter Names January Logline Winner

Tall Tale by Brittney Nuckoles has been named the January, 2015 winner of the LA-Screenwriter Logline Competition:

THE WINNER
This month’s winner was Brittney Nuckoles with her logline for TALL TALE, a feature children’s fantasy:

“After her main character goes missing in the whimsical yet precarious land she created, a malevolent writer casts an unassuming girl into the land where she must find the character within two days or remain trapped forever.”

We love this logline because it gives a complete sense of the story, and it feels like nothing we’ve seen before. The language is inventive and gives a clear sense of the tone.

About Brittney
Brittney has spent the last eight years working in the movie business… Ok, the movie theater business. When not burning the popcorn, sweeping up said popcorn, or pouring the umpteenth jumbo diet soda, she occasionally turns her thoughts into cohesive sentences with the goal of seeing her name accompany the “written by” credit on the big (or small) screen. In addition to being the oldest person working at a movie theater and a delusional writer, Brittney is a counseling graduate student, Netflix addict, and an avid wanderer.

THE FINALISTS
First up, we have writing team Nadia & Ben Robertson with their logline for VOYEUR, a thriller:

“An uninspired photographer stalked by a masked killer is drawn into a collaboration to create beautiful and gruesome art that pushes the limits of his sanity.”

This logline made my spine tingle. It’s high concept, original, and it doesn’t waste words. We don’t know from this logline exactly what’s going to happen, but we know enough to fall in love with this concept.

About Nadia & Ben
1931 Productions, co-founded by husband and wife duo Ben and Nadia Robertson, is a Los Angeles-based film production company with the mindset of creating cinematic, stylish and memorable films regardless of budget. 1931 Productions offers unique & compelling screenplays for sale, and produces atmospheric short and feature films written and directed by The Robertsons. With new scripts and projects on the horizon, 1931 Productions anticipates a rewarding year following the successes of their first feature screenplay, VOYEUR. Recently the script placed Quarter-finalist in the 2014 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Screenplay contest, Quarter-finalist in the 2013 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards as well as receiving positive feedback from the BlueCat Screenplay Competition and various other production companies and executives.

Finally, we have Thesy Surface with her logline for Moscow Mule, an action comedy:

“A group of art thieves discover that the Rodin they nabbed in Moscow is actually a vault hiding Putin’s donkey sex tape, but when they attempt to sell it, they get caught in a pursued-across-the-globe nightmare by the Russians and the CIA.”

A great new twist on the crime caper. It’s easy to imagine this script delivering a lot of big laughs. I definitely want to read this one!

About Thesy
Thesy Surface is half-American, half-German, but grew up in England. She attended Brown University and started off as an actress in LA, where she nabbed a few roles, including a recurring on “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.” Inspired by her father, now a published author in Germany, she writes and lives alternately in London and Los Angeles.
