Story Starter: 14

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 (with the link to the artist’s page). And if you’d like to produce any of the loglines you see in my Story Starter Series, feel free to contact me!

  1. An OCD nerd vies for control of a small town government seat when his father dies only to be opposed by an old man with abilities whose very existence has only been small town urban legend.
  2. A mild-mannered meteorologist nearing the end of his life travels the world in one last adventure when one of the worst storms in history builds… and seems to follow him wherever he goes.
  3. An accountant volunteering at the library tries to find a wife through online dating when several villains start appearing from the books he’s reading and his potential mates show up at the same time for an unconventional date.

 

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?
