4 KEYS TO WRITING A STRONG SYNOPSIS
From ScriptReader Pro, by by the founder of TV Writer’s Vault, Scott Manville
“If there’s one plight that aspiring screenwriters share, it’s getting a screenplay read by producers… But one of the most overlooked devices when pitching a screenplay is a tightly written synopsis that sells the core concept and story.
When a producer or agent has a rule of dumping a script if the first five pages aren’t stellar, a great synopsis can be the counterpoint that will cause them to buy into the story before they even read the script, and perhaps love the story so much that they want to figure out how the never-perfect-enough script can work.”
