Andy Froemke
Roadmap Top Tier Program Alumnus

Let’s face it. There are a million different paths to success. That’s true to some degree for most industries, but even more so for Tinseltown. We get it, and so we understand why it’s important to hear from people who have achieved what you want to achieve. Learn what their obstacles were, how they overcame them, and take what you can from those lessons to apply to your own life.

While it is true that there are as many paths to success as there are people, we can all learn something from how someone else did it.

This month we welcome Roadmap Top Tier Program Alumn Andy Froemke to share his story from Fade In: to seeing his script optioned by Amazon Studios!

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • Getting started in screenwriting 
  • Writing and rewriting 
  • Getting optioned
  • Live Q&A!
