Story Starter: 08

The task: to come up with three loglines (very short story descriptions) based on the image. The point: to stay creative and hone my ability as a screenwriter to write loglines.

All images can be found on my Story Starter Pinterest board.

  1. A champion swimmer from an alien world arrives at a galactic championship with dreams of being an ordinary cargo captain when the contest is suddenly halted by political dissidents.
  2. An ambitious businessman with personal problems is carted into an ancient greek world where he’s effectively made a slave to the goddess of the seas, the ruling tyrannical overseer.
  3. A god from an age old pantheon tries to drum up remembrance of he and his fellow gods by bringing a failing writer through a portal just as war breaks out.


Rate each logline!

Award stars based on your interest in the loglines! Do they have characters, themes, and imagery that intrigue you? Would you watch that movie? Give it 5 stars for something you're super excited about all the way to 1 star for something you stopped reading because you were so disinterested in it.

Pick your favorite!

If you could only pick one logline, one movie to go see, which one would it be?
