Branding and Marketing Webinar with Joey Tuccio, CEO of Roadmap Writers
Charnay is currently a Creative Executive at Anonymous Content working across Television and Film development. Previously Charnay was the Creative Executive at Covert Media, where she was involved in the development and production of Covert Media’s vast film slate, including the star-studded OPHELIA starring Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen and Tom Felton which premiered worldwide at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and the 2017 Netflix feature NAKED starring Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall. Charnay was integral in bringing Covert’s project THE SECRET, an adaptation of the worldwide best-selling book, directed by Andy Tennant (Ever After: A Cinderella Story, Hitch, Fool’s Gold) and starring Katie Holmes to the company. Charnay is keen on telling stories from perspectives that are not always featured in mainstream media. Additionally, Charnay works with Women in Film as a judge on the board for their Film Finishing Fund, and as a Peer Mentor in their Mentoring Circles. She also mentors with Mayor Garcetti's Evolve Entertainment Fund. She started her own organizations WHO RUN THE WORLD and THE TRIBE. Both encompass an elite group of female executives/producers/managers & agents working across the film and television industry with the goal of creating more opportunities for women both behind and in front of the camera. She is a graduate of UCLA and Brunel University (UK).
Krista Sipp is a literary manager based out of Los Angeles. She and her partner, Devon Byers, founded First Friday Entertainment in 2017. First Friday is a management and production company representing writers, directors, and producers in the film, TV, and digital space.

Currently, Krista is focused on developing clients with fresh voices and diverse points of view.

Her clients have worked on projects such as A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW (HBO), KATY KEENE (CW), the upcoming independent feature TUNNELS, starring Susan Sarandon, as well as the upcoming Legendary comic book series LUPINA.
Joey started in the industry at Bold Films (Drive, Nightcrawler, Whiplash) and has read for Hugh Jackman's company, George Clooney's company, and Night and Day Pictures, to name a few. The only thing Joey is more passionate about than helping writers is rescuing dogs.
