Our aim here at The Ultimate Logline Contest is to help you to hone your skills as a writer and develop your best film ideas.

In the spirit of that goal, we’re enlisting the help of top screenwriting coaches and consultants to give tips, tricks and tools to make the most of your brilliant idea and craft the ultimate logline.

PilarAlessandraToday, the wonderful Pilar Alessandra from On the Page  and author of The Coffee Break Screenwriter has generously shared her template for finding the perfect logline in four different ways.

A sought-after teacher and lecturer on screenwriting, pitching and story analysis, and available as a consultant to help writers create, refine and sell their scripts, Pilar’s students and clients have sold to Disney, DreamWorks, Warner Brothers and Sony and have won prestigious competitions, including the Austin Film Festival and Nicholl Fellowship.

Pilar will be giving an intensive three-hour Masterclass “Getting it on the Page” at the Great American PitchFest in June this year, focusing on writing style, tone and technique, and taking a hard look at word choice, scene direction, dialogue approach, and the nuances of the page. Pilar will also be available for individual consultations, available as part of the Gold and Platinum ticket packages or individually purchased from the à la carte booking system.

Don’t forget, you have just TWO days left to enter the logline contest this month, and the winner will receive a Platinum pass, so you could be consulting one on one with Pilar in a matter of weeks!
