A picture is worth a 1000 words! 

That's why it's so important to have a visual component to your film or television script. Let Creative Director Evan Schmitt walk you through the steps of creating a killer pitch deck. You'll gain the tools to make a solid film/television deck that captures the exact style and tone of your project so that there's no confusion on what your vision is for your story.  

Shows like STRANGER THINGS and ADVENTURE TIME have really raised the bar on how pitch decks are constructed and presented. Decks were crucial in getting both of these highly creative and outside-of-the-box concepts sold. The more you can paint a clear picture of the world, mood and characters of your script, the more likely you are to wow executives!

We get it. Pitch decks can be intimidating, but that’s why Roadmap has designed this special four week class to guide you through the process and walk away with a professional pitch deck ready for marketing! 

The Four Week Class Will Cover: 

  • The structure and content of a pitch deck 
  • Content, language, and tone 
  • Graphics and design 
  • Presentation
