Default When you query ...

What do you send?

Title
Logline
Like xx meets yy
Writer background information

Please let me know if interested to read the full script, etc.

In the body of the e-mail?

Here's a good thread on it, Merrick.

http://messageboard.donedealpro.com/...ad.php?t=80548

Just keep it short and simple.

--Put the script title and genre in the subject line.

-- Greet a person, not "to whom it may concern."

-- Include your logline.

-- You don't have to say "let me know if you're interested" because they already know that's why you're querying.

-- yes, it all goes in the body of an email. You never send the actual script unless/until they tell you to.

Good luck.

You can try different things like this, but I would stick with what I wrote above at first. See how people like your logline. A logline is tough to do. Don't make your logline too longer either.

JOHN WICK meets THE GOONIES, but you don't have to

Or I sometimes do IN THE VEIN OF "JOHN WICK"

If your script Won Austin, yeah I throw that in..

How did you know my film was called Ball Sack? And how did you know it was a drama?

This is all perfect. Thanks a lot, folks.
