Default Re: Production/Query

Well let me ask another question. Are production companies a little scared
of based on true events or is my logline screwed up?

A vengeful karate master stalks the streets annihilating members of a lethal crime cartel. The vigilante's deadly form of justice gains support from unlikely allies as he faces a gauntlet of death traps in order to free a terrorized community from a crime hub of gangsters.
(Based on true life events)

In my mind at least, that's a little too long for for a logline, try shortening it to something like:

"A vengeful karate master utilizes his skill, technique and lethal measures to free a terrorized community from a brutal crime cartel".

True stories are actually more in demand it seems Find a company that does films like you're hoping to make. But that logline's got to go bro. It's wordy and complicated and not catchy.

"Death Wish meets Enter the Dragon in this true story of a law-abiding Karate Master forced to turn vigilante against a crime syndicate in order to bring justice to a terrorized community."

Not much better probably... but you get the idea.

Try IMDB it lists every production company in the world. Do a little research man- between IMDB, Google, Wikipedia, Pipl.com, Zabasearch, etc. you can pretty much find any person on earth with a little effort.
