Top 100 Loglines for the Scriptshadow Logline/Screenplay Contest Its finally here. The Top 100 loglines for the Scriptshadow Logline/Screenplay Contest. If you see your logline below, that means you were selected from nearly 1000 loglines and have until Monday, November 30th, 11:59pm, to send me either the first ten pages of your screenplay, a one-page synopsis (a general rundown of the first, second and third acts), or both. If you want to send me the entire screenplay, thats fine also, and Ill only read to page 10. These submissions should be sent to Carsonreeves3@gmail.com

(some of you sent loglines to Carsonreeves1 last time. Tsk tsk). The Top 25 will then be announced on December 21st, where further instructions will be given.

If youre wondering why your logline wasnt selected (or screaming because you know yours is better than the ones below), heres a quick list of the possible reasons why I didnt select you.

1) Spelling and grammar My experience has been that if someone cant submit a single sentence without making a spelling or grammar mistake, their script is going to be a chore to get through. Not to say its impossible. Just that the odds are highly favorable that thats the case. 2) Genre Just like everyone, I have my favorite genres. If you submitted something in one of my least favorite genres, you had an uphill battle. 3) Too vague A depressed guy opens a bookstore, in most cases, isnt enough information for a logline. 4) Too wordy Some loglines tried to cram so much information into one sentence, they came off as confusing. 5) Subject matter This is the big one and probably the most likely reason your logline didnt get chosen because I'd say at least 75% of you sent in solid loglines. In the end, I had to choose stuff I

felt like I would like. So if you didnt get picked, it doesnt mean your logline is worse than the ones I picked. It just means it wasnt quite for me personally.

All that said, I made at least one exception to every one of those points. Comedy, Sci-Fi, and Thrillers did well because thats what I like. But some horror, crime, family, and even a fairy tale, crept their way onto the list. Going through the loglines was both a blast and a learning experience. It reinforced just how important getting your logline right is. You only have a brief moment to catch someones attention, so you better make sure its perfect. It also reinforces the advantage of having a high-concept screenplay if youre an unrepresented writer. Its just so much easier to get people to request your script if you have a great hook.

Anyway, blah blah blah. You dont want to hear any of that. You want to get to the loglines! So here they are, the Top 100 (plus an extra five I just couldnt leave off). Who are you putting your money on? (p.s. Any spelling/typo mistakes were probably made by me during the transcribing process)
