Session Formats

Pitch Prep Webinar: Learn the general structure of a pitch. Hone in on the basic goals of pitching. Get tips on holding an exec's attention during your pitch. And you'll hear an example verbal pitch to get you off on the right foot!

Interactive Logline Clinic: Having trouble with your logline? Want a formula for how to compose an effective logline? Members can workshop together with Roadmap's COO Dorian Connelley to create a standout logline!

Combs' Corner: Roadmap's Creative Director Brandon Combs gives you a behind-the-scenes look at pitch sessions, interacting with executives, the life of an aspiring screenwriter, tips on staying sane, avoiding writer’s block, networking techniques, getting your work out there and more!

Elevator Pitch Roundtable: Have a 5-Minute Elevator Pitch to an industry professional in an online roundtable setting for their valuable feedback. Previous elevator pitch sessions included execs from Dark Trick Films (Ryan Reynolds' company), Fictional Entity, Original Film, Rumble Films, and Lawrence Bender Productions. 

Opening Pages Analysis: Roadmap's CEO Joey Tuccio discusses some of the immediate reasons an executive might pass on your work...and you might not even know you're doing one of these things! Remember, most execs won't read past page 5 if they aren't hooked from the start. Joey will give several volunteer writers specific feedback on their opening 3 pages. The pages will be shared on screen with the rest of the group so everybody can learn from the feedback.

Webinars: These 90-minute sessions are taught by working screenwriters and industry executives. A comprehensive range of writing and marketing topics is covered by each professional. A live Q&A follows every presentation to address your specific concerns.

On-Ramp is an introduction to the Career Writer Program. Writers must complete Steps 1-3 to be considered for our Top Tier Program.
