Industry Access On-Ramp

Couldn't get into Pitch Prep until next month? Taking a month off between steps? Or just not ready to commit?

This low-cost sampling of our programs includes:

      Step 1: Pitch Prep Program

      Your script is complete! Now be sure you're prepared to take it to market.

      Master the fundamentals:

      • Hone your written and verbal pitch
      • Build your brand
      • Practice in a safe setting

        Step 2: Marketing Intensive

        Now that you've had some practice, get in front of execs in a constructive environment.

        Put your skills to the test:

        • Test-run your pitch
        • Meet execs in a curated setting
        • Prepare for longer-form general meetings
              "I can’t even tell you how much value I am getting from Roadmap and I just think all the time I’m so glad this exists!! 20 years ago (the last time I was writing screenplays) there was NOTHING like this. Execs didn’t know if a script was from some nutcase writer and writers didn’t know if the notes they were getting were from an exec with any kind of experience or value. But with Roadmap, there is just so much opportunity to not just get your brand out there, but to connect with really great execs who are on the front lines and know what they’re talking about. Without Roadmap, I would just be reading Syd Field and Robert McKee and throwing spaghetti at the wall just hoping I got it right. Thank you for all the RoadCrew do!!" - April Capil, Screenwriter
