Re: The New Black List
NoirDigits says, “A writer’s ability (or inability) to craft a concise and intriguing logline is probably a good indicator of their overall talent.”
-- This is true. If the logline is an overwritten, meandering, mess of confusion, then most likely anyone will believe the script is the same way and move on.
I suggest for a writer to workshop his logline before he posts it -- and this being after you workshop your script.
I believe with just the loglines being posted it’s gonna be about the commercial aspect on deciding on whether or not to proceed and not the writing, so for a writer with a non-commercial concept, or a low concept looking for an agent or manager they’re gonna need help by way of getting solid coverage on their script in order to get attention.
