Spec Tracking

Every so often, I’ll post the titles and loglines of scripts that are currently being shopped to producers. It’s a great way to familiarize yourself with what scripts are getting attention based on their loglines alone. You’ll notice running trends with these specs — most importantly, there are a few genres which are perpetually popular. Action thriller, comedy, romantic comedy, crime drama — you’ll see a lot of these. Sci-fi, romantic drama, biopics and other genres tend to be harder sells, for various reasons (men won’t see romantic dramas, sci-fi costs money, etc.) but you can always count on a cheaply-produced buddy comedy to take in some money at the box office or, at the very least, on DVD.

    That is a MUCH better logline for THE ARCHITECT than I came up with.
