Story Starter: 06

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….
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.


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?
