What a Great Logline Looks Like: September 2017 Edition

The September Logline Competition results are in! Check out these great examples of how to write a logline:


Our winner is Callum Ramsay with his logline for PLAN C, a comedy:

Desperate to continue his extravagant lifestyle, a broke, washed-up crime writer enlists his crazy-yet-well-mannered stalker to help him recreate a bank robbery from his only best-selling book.”

This is easy to imagine as a big summer release. The idea is high concept, original, and clearly comedic. We’d go see this movie!

About Callum (callum_ramsay@yahoo.co.uk)

Callum Ramsay lives in Perth Australia where he works as a high-pressure water blaster on offshore oil and gas platforms. Callum is currently taking a professional script writing course with two assessments left before completion. He hopes to start writing scripts as a career in the near future.


First, we have Morgan Lietz with his logline for SINS OF OUR MOTHERS, a dramedy:

“A few weeks before the biggest hit of his career, an introverted contract killer begrudgingly lets his estranged, dying mother move in, forcing him to keep his secrets–and bodies–buried.”

This one harks back to other classic comedies about killers, but it brings something new to the table. Another great, simple idea that’s easy to imagine on the big screen.

About Morgan (lietznm@gmail.com)

Morgan Lietz is a 22-year-old undergrad student from southern California with a deep passion for writing, partly due to the fact that his brain was unable to fully compute math and sciences post-twelfth grade. Morgan is still an amateur within the field of screenwriting, but he hopes that his continued practice of writing (combined with hundreds of hours of memorized film quotes circling around his brain) will one day help him succeed in creating a full feature film.

Next, we have Simon Chapman with his logline for REDUX, an hour sci-fi pilot:

“A disillusioned priest discovers an alien spacecraft capable of altering reality and uses it to impose his vision of paradise on the world, but the unintended consequences of his “fixes” give rise to a deadly government manhunt for this unwanted savior.

This feels fresh, timely, and full of possibility. This logline manages to pack in quite a bit of plot and character. It feels like a whole story world, which is perfect for TV.

About Simon (crayoncreative@hushmail.com)

Based in Sydney, Australia, Simon Christopher Chapman is a Communications post-graduate who worked for five years at the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra before pursuing a career in acting and writing. He has written and produced several short films and is currently writing a children’s book and feature film screenplay.

The October Logline Competition is now open! We have wonderful prizes from Script Pipeline, Virtual Pitchfest, WeScreenplay, The Hollywood Pitching Bible, and Talentville. Get your loglines in for detailed feedback and a chance at great prizes.
