Hmmm. I'll see what I can do on this. Normally, a synopsis is used after a picture has been pitched. Most want to see the "goods" ... a script. First, they want to know you've actually written one and not just plied them with a synposis. Occasionally, you might be asked to furnish a synopsis WITH a script submission, but rarely will you be asked to provide one first. At least, that's my experience.

In answer to your question, I'll give it some thought and see what I can put together that might be helpful.

Hello, Don:
You have articles about screenwriting, loglines and now I'd like to see several articles on writing synopses.
I say "several" because I've seen conflicting articles telling you to "tease" your potential market or the exact opposite, to edit everything into your synopses because no one has the time to read a bad script on account of a nettlesome synopses that "conned" them.
What say you, Don?
Yours truly,
Robo
