At Roadmap, we believe in putting writers in real-world environments and showing them what the industry is really like. Enter: The Water Bottle Tour!
"Water Bottle Tour" is the term for when agents and managers set their clients up on a string of meetings in a short period of time. The phrase refers to the litany of water bottles one collects at each of these meetings that usually end up covering your car's floorboard! In this Water Bottle Tour, writers learn what executives really look for in their pages, pitches, and general meetings.
Our Water Bottle Tour is for Advanced Writers Only. We strongly recommend completing the Pitch Prep Program and the Marketing Intensive prior to diving in. Full of immersive opportunities with executives and private general meetings, writers are put to the test in numerous rooms with more execs than ever! This is a fast-paced, fully immersive experience to push you from "good in the room" to "owning the room".
"Loving the Water Bottle Tour! Learned a lot from some very sharp industry pros, running the gamut from pitching and taking meetings to getting full coverage on my script. It was already well worth the money, and I still have one week to go!" - Lisa Rysinger
"I loved the Water Bottle Tour! It provided assistance in ways not normally accessible. For instance, we’re having a 30-minute general meeting this weekend to mimic such meetings in LA. Great opportunity!" - Larry Woldenberg
"Hollywood is all about “Who you know.” But how do you, as a writer, turn that around to “Who knows you?” The water bottle tour will teach you how to get noticed and remembered." - Marie Roughan
