Story Starter: 04

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. Creatures that resemble fish fight through a portal with plans to terra form and conquer earth when they come face to face with a band of scheming rogues: cats.
  2. A deaf boy uses his musical abilities to control his little world in extraordinary ways even as those abilities create a massive natural disaster that threatens his small town.
  3. A rebellious, homeschooled kid runs away from home only to realize his house was couched in a pocket dimension of magic that separated Earth from a mirror universe of evil.


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?
