Hollywood General Meetings

Online Classes

Do you live in LA or are you coming to LA? 

How about taking an in-person general meeting or two?  

Due to the writers' strike, these meetings will just be with reps. Meeting with reps and getting signed during the strike is approved.

You are guaranteed ONE meeting, though we will try for 2. Only sign up for this if you are okay with possibly only getting 1 meeting.  

For Roadmap's Hollywood General Meetings, you'll submit your logline (including title, format, genre, and tonal comps) and your 5-8 sentence bio written in the third person, plus the names of up to 10 appropriately-researched management companies you'd like to meet with (and any companies you do NOT want to meet with).

You must submit your material no less than 2 weeks prior to when you want to start having meetings. We will send you any feedback on your marketing material before reaching out to companies. We will also prep you on how to own the room in a general meeting. Finally, we'll reach out to 5-8 reps with your logline and bio to set up in-person general meeting(s).

*You are guaranteed at least one in-person general meeting but we'll set you up with as many interested reps as we can! Writers will get a feedback report on how they did during each meeting. 

*Roadmap reserves the right to cancel this order if we feel the writer is not ready for meetings. If that happens, writer will receive a full refund.

*Only sign up for this if you are already in LA or are already coming to LA. It is not encouraged for you to come to LA only for this as it is very likely you will only get 1 meeting. Please also note that in-person meetings are much more unpredictable than virtual meetings and as such, meeting(s) may be set, canceled, or moved on short notice.

What is a General Meeting?

To find available reps & execs to request a meeting with, please peruse our consultation page and our success story page to ensure we have relationships with them.

- General meetings are conversations, not interviews or pitch meetings. Come in ready to have a two-way conversation. 

- Be prepared to talk about anything besides screenwriting. This is an opportunity for the exec to get to know you as a human, in addition to as a writer. 

- Don't overpitch. Let the exec ask you to pitch and then you will go into why you write what you write (i.e. your personal logline) and then go into a 1-2 minute pitch. Always start with the tone and then go into a short pitch. 

- They might ask what else you have and then you can ask them what they are looking for. But don't ask them before your first pitch. 

- Don't ask them for contact info or if they want to stay in touch. They will circle back with me and then we will send you their feedback which will state if they want to read more from you. 

- The rep will only get your logline and bio prior.

- Make sure you do some LIGHT research on the rep. Don't go on their socials but look at their company and maybe see if they have any podcast interviews.
