How to Write a Screenplay Title?

Whether you’re writing a title for a feature film, television series, web series, or a sketch, the same general methodology applies: a screenplay title should capture the audience’s interest, reflect genre and tone, and most importantly, indicate the new idea of your project.

Simple, to-the-point titles are usually the most effective. The title is the first item readers will see when introduced to your screenplay, and it’s also the first item that an audience sees in the marketing of the production.  Therefore it’s important to be immediately clear when expressing  what your script is about.
