Don’t worry. I’m here to help.
I’m Angela Bourassa, the person behind LA Screenwriter. Over the better part of the last decade, I’ve studied the underappreciated art of loglines. As a writing tool, loglines are horribly misunderstood. Everyone from first-time writers to seasoned pros hates writing them.
Fortunately, that’s something I can help with.
I have personally given written feedback on over 1,500 loglines and have helped craft hundreds more. Whether you’re using a logline to test a new idea or need a professional logline to pitch your latest script, I can help you craft a logline that gets to the heart of your unique concept.

Frequently Asked Questions...
Yes. You don’t always need to have a perfectly crafted logline, but it never hurts. Strong loglines show the reader (and the writer) whether the idea is creative, fresh, high concept, and worth exploring. I highly recommend writing a logline before you write the script as a test of your idea. Once your script is ready, a logline can be an invaluable tool for pitching your script.
This is your chance to tell me about the tone, style, theme, and intended audience of your script. You can also explain your reasoning for why you wrote your logline the way you did or give more info about what makes your script idea fresh and commercial.
Nope. No need to spend too much time making the synopsis perfect. I’m not judging you on it. Just make sure it’s clear. Your synopsis should include descriptions of your main characters and the basic plot. You should also include the setting, inciting incident, central goal, stakes, and ticking time bomb (if there is one).
Well, if your logline is more than 100 words, it’s not a logline. Ideally, your logline should be one sentence and it should be about 30-35 words. If it’s substantially more than that, don’t worry about it – that’s why I’m helping you.

Absolutely! In fact, I highly recommend it. By sharing your logline with me early, I can help you make your idea as strong as possible before you start your rough draft.
And just so you know, I’ll never share your logline with anyone without your express permission.
You’ll just have to have a little faith. Ideas are not copyright-able, and people write similar script ideas all the time in Hollywood. I’ve got my own script ideas — I’m really not interested in taking yours.
