IMPORTANT NOTE: Please provide a brief logline of no more than two sentences. Your logline will be the first element our team will use to evaluate your submission. This is your calling card for your script, is it doing its job?

1. What is the central crisis driving the narrative, particularly in the second act?
2. Who is your main character and what is their emotional arc?
3. What is the general setting or tone of the piece?

If you are struggling to encapsulate these elements of your concept, then we recommend submitting your project for a logline review. Please also read this article and watch this video, then edit your logline. We encourage you to keep trying new versions of your loglines until you get more attention from producers. Loglines are that important!
