This challenge came from the mind of Writers' Room Member Louisa Kendrik Burton: "We are all given the same premise or a Logline. Everyone writes 3 pages. [Let's] see how different they all are even though they are based on the same premise!" This is a fantastic idea and brilliant in it's simplicity and originality. So, without further ado here is the logline as the prompt: "A down-on-their luck janitor receives a mysterious package on their front steps, with a note promising inside is the solution to all their problems, but it will come at a cost." During the webcast we heard from a number of members who took the logline is several different directions - all with original and compelling ideas. Full Bio »
