Emerging writers face a daunting challenge in today's entertainment landscape: finding execs to take a chance on their work. You need to have a voice/POV that jumps off the page, a solid personal logline, a head-turning bio, and know which companies to target and how!
Fortunately, for the first time, our CEO Joey Tuccio, an industry veteran with over a decade's experience preparing writers and connecting them with execs, is available to help you with your specific marketing package needs!
In this career-focused offering, Joey will:
- Read the first 20 pages of your script to get a sense of your voice, and make sure you're leading with the best possible impression.
- Read your bio and polished project loglines to triangulate your brand.
- Schedule a 30-minute private session to provide you with actionable feedback on your marketing materials. If Joey and the writer both feel the material is ready, Joey will discuss how Roadmap can help market their material for no additional cost. We will only be focused on reps during the strike.
Joey started in the industry at Bold Films (DRIVE, NIGHTCRAWLER, WHIPLASH) and has read for Hugh Jackman's company, George Clooney's company, and Night and Day Pictures, to name a few. Experiencing how hard it was for writers to receive real tangible advice on how to break into the industry, Joey and Dorian created Roadmap Writers over 6 years ago. At Roadmap, Joey focuses on connecting vetted writers with execs in the industry. He has helped hundreds of writers connect to their representation, get staffed and get produced. He also mentors for Cinestory and The Writers Lab. When he's not helping writers, he spends his time rescuing animals in need.
