Default Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

Everyone knows every goddamn detail of JAWS. That's the only reason that short logline works. Because we already know about the chief, we know it's a friggin monster, we know people get eaten, we know about the shark hunter.

Is it really enough for a spec screenplay logline from an unknown aspiring screenwriter to say, "It's basically about this" with no details? Preposterous.

Anyone got anything sensible to say?
Nobody knows anything, and I'm nobody.
