Logline: 1 (sometimes 2) sentences that describe a movie or screenplay.

Synopsis: usually 2 or 3 pages that tell the story of the screenplay or movie

Pitch: could describe either (a) how you try to sell (pitch) your screenplay to potential producers or (b) the pitch book that presents those ideas with a combination of words 7 images

I've never seen the term "note of intent" used in this context
