At Roadmap, we know how important it is to keep getting in front of executives and keeping your pitching muscles strong. We also know life can sometimes get in the way and you can't commit to a full month of Top Tier.
So we created the Roadmap Writers Top Tier On-Ramp exclusively for Top Tier writers who want to keep marketing and pitching and still be to handle life that month!
Top Tier Roundtable: You will choose an executive from the month's roster and submit the first 15 pages of up to two of your scripts for them to read prior to the session where you will have a 20-minute general meeting with them via ZOOM. All Roundtables take place on the last 2 weekends of each month.
Auditing Top Tier Roundtables: Additionally, writers have the opportunity to audit all of the month's Top Tier Roundtables (approx. 15-25/month). At the end of each Roundtable, there is often time for Auditors to do elevator pitches with the execs. These quick Auditor pitches have led to many script requests in Top Tier, so do not take this benefit for granted!
Marketing Email Session: Submit at least 50 companies to Joey with your loglines & bio and he will query 5-6 companies that Roadmap has relationships with to recommend your script with our referral. This is one of the most effective programs we have at Roadmap for getting your material into the hands of decision-makers.
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!
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.
"Loving the Water Bottle Tour! I've learned a lot from some very sharp industry pros, running the gamut from pitching and taking meetings to understanding full coverage on a script. It's already been well worth the money, and I still have one week to go!"
- Lisa Rysinger, Screenwriter | Now in Top Tier!
"I loved the Water Bottle Tour! It provided assistance in ways not normally accessible. For instance, we’re having a 30-minute general meeting this weekend to mimic such meetings in LA. Great opportunity!"
- Larry Woldenberg, Screenwriter | Now in Top Tier!
"Hollywood is all about 'Who you know.' But how do you, as a writer, turn that around to 'Who knows you?' The Water Bottle Tour will teach you how to get noticed and be remembered."
- Marie Roughan, Screenwriter | Now in Top Tier!
"The Water Bottle Tour was wonderfully intensive and really encouraged me to prepare and show up to each session or meeting ready to learn. Each component provided invaluable insights and I was thrilled to have the chance to talk about my projects one-on-one with esteemed managers. Highly recommend this program."
- Katharine McPhee, Screenwriter | Now in Top Tier!
"The Water Bottle Tour is the ONLY program that has given me direct access to working industry contacts. Lots of companies make promises. Roadmap delivers. I made connections with a veritable who’s who of producers, agents, and managers, and - after years of trying on my own - secured representation based on these contacts. Roadmap knows the game and how it is played, and the people on their team are focused on winning. I give them my highest recommendation."
- Jeremy Kriss, Screenwriter
