ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Let a logline master (Timothy Cooper, the creator of 365 Loglines), diagnose and improve your loglines—live and on the spot! No matter what genre you're writing, every amazing script starts with a logline that describes an intriguing lead, a major obstacle, and a unique journey.

This master clinic on loglines will save you months of wasted time by cutting to the heart of what makes great movies great—awesome conflict, dramatic irony, and a totally original adventure. Too many writers waste time on the script itself early on—before they truly have a logline that's DISTINCT, SPECIFIC, and SURPRISING enough to be worthy of their time. Avoid that rookie mistake: Create a brand-new pitch that's uniquely thrilling, accessible, and marketable!

First, Timothy will teach you key principles by breaking down classic loglines from some of the greatest films (and highest-priced script sales) in recent history. Then he'll take the loglines you submit and create a world of new possibilities for your idea, right then and there!
