NOTE: Your treatment can be up to 2, 3 or more pages depending on the length of your script. And you have to give in your best in order to impress the reader (the potential buyer). The verbs and actions in your LOGLINE and SYNOPSIS must be active and in present tense. Write your expressions as they would appear on the screen in real time. And try and make them comprehensive enough. Just do your best and impress the buyer.


And just don't be afraid! It will never be easy for someone to copy the content in your script after they read your logline/synopsis/treatment. 


Art is so dynamic, and even if anyone developed a story from your logline/synopsis/treatment, it can never be the same with what you have originally. Every art is very unique, and no two arts can ever be the same even if they were from same source.
