About Your Host

Jed Mellick started his Film and TV career working for Chris Bender and JC Spink at their company Benderspink. There he learned both the management and producing side of the business, how to develop scripts and work with writers to create compelling story. While at Benderspink, Jed discovered and developed the script for the first feature he produced 4TH MAN OUT, starring Evan Todd, Parker Young, Chord Overstreet and Kate Flannery, which enjoyed a robust festival life garnering several awards and is currently available on Netflix. Jed then co-founded Jemstone Productions and went on to produce the film ALL THESE SMALL MOMENTS. This film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and stars Molly Ringwalk, Brian d’Arcy James, Jemima Kirke, Brendan Meyer, Sam McCarthy and Harley Quinn Smith and can be seen on Amazon Prime. Jed and his company are currently in development on several projects across Film and TV and love working with new and diverse voices. Jed Mellick graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Communication Studies and has a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling, the career he pursued in preparation for moving to Los Angeles.

Group Mentorship - Program Details

Limited to only 5 writers, in this special Group Mentorship you won't just receive feedback on your script, but also individual coaching on your pitch, your marketing strategy, and your next steps as you take your screenwriting career to the next level!

You will have the opportunity to share your material with your classmates so that each writer will learn from their own feedback and the feedback given to their peers. You'll also be able to email the host during the week so you are fully guided for the entire month.

Program Schedule

MEETING #1 - INTRODUCTION & SCRIPT REVIEW #1 
Your mentor will read your full script prior to the first session and will give each writer 20-30 min. of notes. Get personalized feedback on your pages and ask your mentor any questions about your script and the industry! 

MEETING #2 - WRITERS’ CHALLENGE + PITCH ROUNDTABLE
Your mentor will assign a writing prompt of their own design to see how you adapt to a "writing assignment"-like scenario. Following feedback & discussion of the Challenge submissions, you'll have the opportunity to test out the verbal pitch for one of your projects with your mentor and peers.

MEETING #3 - SCRIPT REVIEW #2
Your mentor will read another full script prior to the session - it's your choice to get a second round of notes on your script to really make it shine or work on an entirely different script altogether!

MEETING #4 - NEXT STEPS CLINIC + PITCH ROUNDTABLE
Your mentor will review a one-pager of your bio, loglines, any traction, and questions about where you're at and what you should focus on next when it comes to your screenwriting career. Get actionable career advice on what your next steps should be, plus you'll have the opportunity to get final thoughts on your reworked verbal pitch!
