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.

What to Expect

It's important for every writer to have a solid script AND to show executives that they are collaborative and professional to work with. These 2-week Matchmaker Clinics are designed to give writers an opportunity to develop a solid script and collaborate with an industry professional. Review the list of available executives and select the one that best fits your script!

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 you will have a week between sessions to revise your pages and in the second roundtable, you'll have another 25-minute meeting to talk about the submitted revisions.
