# Story Details

This is where you will add some primary information about your story. You might not know it all at first, but you can easily come back to add and refine later.

A useful technique in developing a story idea is to imagine the trailer. What's the visual tone of your piece? What colors, setting and mood will pervade the narrative and give it visual structure? You can capture all of this with the right image. Click the camera icon to upload your own photo, or search thousands of commercial-free images from Unsplash.

# Title (required)

If you don't have a title yet, just enter a temporary "working title". i.e. Super Hero Movie

# Logline

This is a short, roughly two sentence synopsis of your story. It briefly describes your main character, and the predicament they find themselves in. For example:

Star Wars IV - A New Hope

When an optimistic farm boy discovers that he has powers, he teams up with other rebel fighters to liberate the galaxy from the sinister forces of the Empire.

# Genre

Genre can be both simple and beautifully complex. There are basic types of movies: Comedy, Action, etc., but there are also several variations such as Teen Comedy, Buddy Action and Romantic Comedy. Furthermore, you can mix genres and make something far more interesting like a Dark Comedic Thriller, or a Western Horror.

In Prewrite, you can add multiple genres as tags by typing one out, hitting enter, and typing in the next.

# Theme

Theme is an advanced topic that is hard to teach and harder to master but it is absolutely vital to developing a good story. Ask yourself, "What am I trying to say with this story?" The answer can, and arguably should, inform every creative decision you make when outlining your screenplay.

# Credits

If you're outlining an original work, this section is for your name and/or any writing partners. If you're building a Prewrite outline for an existing story, be sure to credit the original authors and copyright holders.
