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.
I started this one a few days ago. I have to admit, something not overtly fantasy/scifi is particularly challenging. And that doesn’t mean I can’t turn it into sci-fi/fantasy. Just had to stretch my imagination a little….
- When her child goes missing, an uptown, no-nonsense mother searches 1960’s New York only to face weird wonderland obstacles manifested from her child’s imagination.
- An innocent cab driver stumbles into the middle of a kidnapping scheme where he and the kidnapper both discover that the kid is the devil incarnate.
- A precocious kid tries to find love for his mom when they meet a dashing cabbie and instead accidentally uncovers her secret life as a government agent and discovers the cabbie’s mission to assassinate her.
