Re: Final Draft Converting to pdf Query

Okay, good luck with the workaround. You could probably download a free program (like Trelby or KIT Scenarist), and use one of them to import you Final Draft file, and then print to PDF from there....

Re: Cut To:

Looks like I killed another thread. Sorry. I seem to be talented at that. Just bypass my crap and move on.

Re: Cut To:

I know I'm not a professional writer — and don't pretend to be one — but (for me) CUT TO: implies a more of a sudden "jump" to ongoing action in another scene. Not quite like a SMASH CUT...

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

Thanks for the criticism and advice. You're right (in the non-quoted part of your post) I was figuring the reader would fill in the "connective tissue." And, yes, similar stuff has already been done,...

Log The Line... LOGLINES (on topic edition)

Since I'm one of the ones who had a big part in derailing Bono's original thread listed under this title, I thought I would repost what he wrote and promise to stay out of this thread. My apologies...

Alright, for what it's worth... here's a logline I worked up for an idea I've had for a while. I wrote the first seven pages as a short, years ago, but saw potential for a possible full script or...

Well, thanks. I'll try to get to your long post a bit later and probably respond to it (unless I feel I've already said everything that I need to say).

In my opinion, no, the logline (with the title) works on its own.

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

Sorry. I guess I took that one post from a thread were they were talking about premises. I don't know for sure.

But, if I ever need to write a logline, I know what advice I'm going to follow.

I wish Neal Stevens would write a book on screenplay writing. I would be in front of the line to buy it.

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

No, not that I know about anyhow. 28 was just an arbitrary number I came up with, but I don't think it's far off the mark.

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

My main problem with loglines is that, for some, they're an end unto themselves. A logline is supposed to be a means to an end. It's supposed to be attached to a script (either a finished script or...

Re: What is the difference?

I know what "standard" means. My point (was I unclear?) is that there is none. There is no "Hollywood standard" for loglines. These "standards" are made up as "they" go, usually by people who run...
