screenwriting synopsis

If you have ever had to fill out the many forms for screenwriting contests, you will find that they all have their own definition of a synopsis.

 

However, the standard is definitely to make the screenwriting synopsis short.  A paragraph or two would suffice, if you're lucky.  Most forms only give you a few lines to make your brief statement about your screenplay.

 

This means, you will have to choose what you think is the "biggest" idea in your story--the main premise of why you wrote it in the first place.

 

For example, in the movie, Seabiscuit, writer, producer, director, Gary Ross, says that one of the big ideas of this movie is about what happens when the American Dream is taken away from you.

 

As an exercise, try writing a paragraph or two about a recent movie you watched and see if you can write a synopsis about the main ideas in the movie.  Then try doing the same with your own script, before or after the actual writing.
