How to Create Loglines, Queries, One-Sheets

Loglines, Queries, and One-Sheets are elements a screenwriter uses to promote their screenplay. A logline is a simply one to three sentences telling what the screenplay is about. A logline needs to grab whomever it’s told to so they immediate understand the concept. A query is used by a screenwriter to solicit a read from either an agent, manager, or producer. While most queries today are sent via email, a query can still be accomplished by writing an actual letter to an agent, manager, or producer and sending through the U.S. Postal Service or done over the telephone. One-Sheets are very brief breakdowns of your screenplay but also include the screenwriter’s name, title of screenplay, contact information, genre of screenplay, and logline all fitting on one page.
