DOWNLOAD PRELIMINARY SYLLABUS
Here's what to expect from each track:
Choice #1: Roundtables - Regular Top Tier where you get the 5x 20-minute roundtables where the execs read your pages prior to your 20-minute sessions. See Syllabus.
Choice #2: Incubator - Our Top Tier Incubator where you develop a completely new script from beginning to end with 1 executive. Joey will email you options during the first couple days of the month, then assign you to a session. You will receive instructions and join links by email.
Choice #3: Matchmakers - We will team 5 writers with 2 execs that are specifically looking for a genre/format that they have at this present moment. We will send those writers' scripts to those execs so they can read the scripts in its entirety. For the first two weeks, you will meet with each exec for 25 minutes each (in a roundtable setting) to get notes, have a Q&A with those execs, give your vision for the story, etc. Then in the last two weeks, you will send your revised pages to those execs and have two other 25-minute sessions with each exec to have another general to talk about the revisions. Joey will email you options during the first couple days of the month, then assign you to a session. You will receive instructions and join links by email.
Choice #4: General Meeting Track - This is only available for writers who have done the Roundtables and Incubator and/or MatchMaker Track prior. In this track you will be matched with 2 executives that will read your script fully. Each exec will have a private 30 minute general meeting with you over Zoom. You will also have 1 Roundtable where an exec will read the first 15 pages of your script and have a 20 minute meet and greet session with you in a roundtable setting.
Joey will email you options during the first couple days of the month, then assign you to a session. You will receive instructions and join links by email.
If you have any questions in the meantime, email firstname.lastname@example.org :)
Joining Sessions: Live sessions will be conducted via video conferencing software ZOOM. If you have never used ZOOM before: when you click the link, the ZOOM software will automatically download. Once the download is complete, you will be joined into the meeting.
Code of Conduct: Roadmap Writers provides training opportunities only. Executives working with Roadmap are doing so in a consulting capacity independent of their respective companies. Developing material with an executive does not mean you are developing material for their company. Please do not ask the executive to review additional material or for business or personal contact information, as such things are under the exec's sole discretion to offer. Keep all conversations focused on feedback and career advice. Any writer causing an executive to feel uncomfortable or pressured will result in probation from upcoming Roadmap programs. Unless otherwise instructed or invited, do not contact the executive directly outside the scope of the relevant program.
