Logline Examples

Writing a logline for screenplays generally requires only one sentence. Loglines sum up the movie’s premise and succinctly let people know what to expect. Note that loglines are different than movie taglines. Taglines are written for marketing the movie, long after the screenplay has been completed.

Writing a logline should be one of the first steps of writing a screenplay. Its creation forces the writer to deduce the story into its essential elements.

Below are a few examples loglines we wrote. We also offer logline writing services.
