You can’t say this without actually telling us the consequences. In your new version, we have no idea why it’s important to find the identity of her father and grandfather or any concept of what happens if she doesn’t.The fact she’s a cyborg hunter is now rendered somewhat redundant as this now just seems like a family drama. We have to understand why her being a cyborg hunter is relevant to the plot. If it’s important enough to include in the logline, it MUST be apparent why it’s important to the plot.I’m guessing her father abandoned her when she was a baby, otherwise she’d have some recollections of him? Possibly worth clarifying to avoid any confusion. Ambiguity is where loglines go to die!Hope this helps.1 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppMike Pedley United Kingdom (UK) 67 Loglines 642 Reviews 100 Best Reviews 51,026 Points View Profile Mike Pedley Singularity 2020-07-31T00:49:08+10:00Added an answer on July 31, 2020 at 12:49 am The end.One of my pet peeves in loglines is referring to the protagonist as “young man” or “young woman”. This is your protagonist. They deserve better!It also bugs me when people don’t proof read. I’m guessing this should be “follow in the footsteps”.Ok… so he’s become a cyborg hunter. Now what? Why did he make this decision. In other words, we need an inciting incident and a goal. Two things which are fundamental in a logline because everything within the story exists within these two tent poles.Give it another go and try and tell us who, specifically, is your protagonist, what he’s trying to achieve and why.1 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppPhilippe Le Miere 3 Loglines 19 Reviews 2 Best Reviews 389 Points View Profile Philippe Le Miere Logliner 2020-07-30T17:06:51+10:00Added an answer on July 30, 2020 at 5:06 pm The achievement in this post is the recognition that “change” is integral to story.To be a complete logline, however, this question of “changing” must be addressed.The answer can be found in the inciting incident. Cause and Effect. Why might a young man take steps to be adopt a family tradition?This story fragment makes me think of ‘The Godfather’. However, what makes the story arc of Godfather so compelling is how a young man “doesn’t” want to adopt the old ways -> only to end up becoming a cyborg hunter (read ‘Gangster’).0 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppIvyEight6 8 Loglines 29 Reviews 1 Best Answer 45 Points View Profile IvyEight6 Penpusher 2020-08-03T06:19:14+10:00Replied to answer on August 3, 2020 at 6:19 am I revised it.0 Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppYou must login to can add an answer.
