Last December we ran the Black List 2012 Word Cloud Logline Challenge which was hugely popular, witness these posts here and here. Come this December, we’ll probably do the same thing. But with The Quest Initiative submission period beginning May 20, I figured this would be a good time for folks to flex their logline muscles.
So here is a Word Cloud using the loglines for all of the spec scripts that have sold thus far in 2013.
The challenge: Come up with an entertaining logline using some of the key words in this Word Cloud.
Prize: Five lucky winners will win a free enrollment in my upcoming 1-week online screenwriting class Write a Worthy Nemesis.
Who decides the winner: None other than Max Millimeter: Hollywood Movie Producer Extraordinaire. If you don’t know who Max is and what his tastes in movies are, you can go here to read the comments he made in selecting the winners of last year’s Black List 2012 Word Cloud Logline Challenge.
My advice to you: Make your loglines entertaining. Max has a really short attention span.
Here is the Word Cloud:
Use some of the words in the Word Cloud to create a unique, interesting and entertaining logline.
Deadline: Friday, May 10 at midnight Pacific Daylight Time [U.S.].
Winners announced Sunday, May 12.
UPDATE: The prizes just got better. Franklin is offering 1 free month hosting of a script on the new Black List site for the five winners. Just waiting for Nate Winslow to throw in some Ginsu knives to round out the deal!
