Loglines – The class broke in to small groups to get feedback and work on each student’s logline.
Short Film – The class watched a short film. The class discussed the clarity of the story line, the very good acting and how the images supported the story.
Cyrano’s Final Script, “Last Anniversary” – The class participated in a table read and audition for Cyrano’s final script.
Homework (Due Next Week – 4/21/15) – The homework is to write a logline and then a 3-paragraph synopsis of their final project idea — 1 paragraph per act — Acts I, II & II. The text refers to this as a “one-sheet” or “pitch on paper” or “POP.” This is used to pitch your story and leave it behind at pitching meetings. So, here is an outline of what your “one-sheet” should contain:
- Your name and contact information
- Title of your story
- 3-paragraph summary of your story (1 paragraph for each of Acts I, II & II.)
(See “Book V: How to Sell Your Script — A Marketing Plan” section of the text for examples.)
