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. That’s why Roadmap is thrilled to have our brilliant alumna Amy Wang, who made both the prestigious 2018 Hit List & Black List, back to share her story!
This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:
- Getting started in screenwriting
- Writing and rewriting
- The Lists: Hit List and Black List
- Audience Q&A!
Amy Wang is a Chinese-Australian filmmaker who grew up in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Her unique perspective often as an outsider fuels her passion for stories about social isolation and the human condition. In Sydney, Amy worked as a promos producer, where she directed shoots for X Factor Australia and worked on shows such as CRIMINAL MINDS, DOWNTON ABBEY, and HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Amy is an AFI directing graduate and was selected to participate in the Ryan Murphy Half Program where she was mentored by Executive Producer/Director Bradley Buecker on AMERICAN HORROR STORY S6.
