Something that is grounded in emotional stakes, thematically written, and leaves readers with a message they can take with them.
Fantasy or blue skies comedies - mad respect, but not my cup of tea!
James DeLorean lives in Los Angeles. He tells empowering character-driven stories about working-class outsiders who desperately aspire to change their circumstances. He's currently the Writers' Room Assistant on Season 2 of SYFY's smash hit THE ARK. His journey began as a screenwriter and singer-songwriter, during which time he wrote an original musical, but when a series of sudden hearing loss episodes led to a devastating inner ear disorder diagnosis, he focused squarely on his passion of storytelling.
James studied writing at UCB, Second City, iO West, and Script Anatomy. His work has been featured in LA Weekly, The Dallas Observer, VoyageLA, Funny or Die, and the Huffington Post - and he was a semifinalist in Final Draft's Big Break and Scriptapalooza.
He enjoys watching true crime docs with his wife (who's studying crime scene investigation), quality time with his ill-behaved golden retriever, collecting vintage computers, and wondering why the hell AOL pulled the plug on AIM. He loves helping other writers hone their stories and celebrating their successes.
Private Month Mentorship
Each month mentorship kicks off with a preliminary 15-min. call to set expectations and lay out strategy for the month. Writer will have email access to the executive plus 4x one-hour consultations with the exec. Exec will read up to 4 scripts in one month (different drafts of the same script or 4 different scripts) and conduct 4x one-hour story notes calls. Calls can also include feedback on your pitch, branding, or career strategy.
If you pay with the deposit/payment plan, your second half will be due the 2nd week of the Mentorship. If you need a different type of payment plan, email email@example.com.
What To Expect
After registering, you will receive an automatic Order Confirmation email. Then Roadmap's Director of Consultations, Terra Joy, will get your mentor looped in with you! If you do not hear from Terra or the exec within 3 days of registering, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for an update.
