In this newly discovered audio, Blake Snyder begins a Save the Cat!® Storytelling Workshop with a lecture on your idea, and how to express it in an effective pitch and logline. He draws the distinction between the pitch and the logline and gives you the elements that make each vital — in the case of a logline, four essential elements and four secondary elements. He talks about the need for “primal” ideas—and how to make your idea both “fresh” and “white-hot at the core.” And you can get a feel for how our storytelling workshops still begin.
