Justin Ross

VP of Development
Bohemia Group Originals
Saturdays 8/3 & 8/17 @ 1:00pm - 3:00pm PT
Great for all genres and formats!
Sold Out - Waitlist Available

We will team 5 writers with 1 exec that are specifically looking for a genre/format that they have at this present moment. We will send those writers' scripts to that exec so they can read the scripts in its entirety. For the first week, you will meet with your exec for 25 minutes each (in a roundtable setting) to get notes, have a Q&A with that exec, give your vision for the story, etc. Then in the second week, you will send your revised pages to that exec and have another 25-minute session with your exec to have another general to talk about the revisions. 

This will a) show managers and execs how you take notes (which is a HUGE deal), b) give you more time with execs and c) give those execs an opportunity to keep working with you after the sessions. Of course, there's no guarantee that every writer will be chosen to keep working with each exec, but it definitely will give those writers a really focused goal for that month and help them improve their material and help those writers make stronger executive relationships.  

About Your Host

Justin Ross was born and raised in the Midwest. He began his film career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles, working on spec for director Maguy Cohen (12 YEARS A SLAVE; GHOST PROTOCOL, second unit direction). Mr. Ross moved to New York where he joined Intrinsic Value Films first as a script reader and shortly thereafter as Creative Executive. During his tenure at Intrinsic, he secured relationships with top talent, including prolific producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald and Sir Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions as well as the estates of authors Ray Bradbury and Philip K.

HOW IT WORKS

Matchmaker Clinics meet online via virtual classroom utilizing video conferencing software ZOOM.

It's important for every writer to have a solid script AND to show executives that they are collaborative and professional to work with.

That's why we created Roadmap's 2-Week Matchmaker Clinics! Look at what the executive is interested in and if you have a script that fits, you can sign up! 

The executive will read your script and in an online roundtable with only 4 other writers, you will have 25 minutes to receive notes from your executive, get to know them and them get to know you

Then in the second roundtable a couple of weeks later, you will send your revised pages to that exec and then have another 25-minute meeting to talk about the revisions. 

Our Matchmaker Clinics are becoming our most popular programs and is helping writers and executives forge relationships stronger than ever!
