How do I nail the pitch?
How do I own the room?
How do I get execs to actually read my material?
How can I take the reins of my own career?

If you're struggling with finding the answers to any of these questions and want to end 2018 with a real bang, we have an exciting new opportunity! 

Roadmap Writers and the London Screenwriters Festival have partnered to create a 5 week online program to help writers from anywhere in the world with The Ultimate Writers Toolkit! 

This unique 5 week online program will walk through writers through every element of screenwriting all the way to actually learning how to find homes for your material! It's hard enough to write a solid script and pitch it successfully, but getting an executive to want to read your material opens up even more obstacles. 

Roadmap Writers' CEO, Joey Tuccio, and the London Screenwriters Festival Founder, Chris Jones, will be teaching this 5 week program to hand hold you through every obstacle you may be facing. 

*Class Schedule*

Week #1 - Opening Page Analysis

  • Learn what executives look for in the opening pages and avoid the most common reasons why execs pass (and you might be doing it and not even know it!).
Prior to the next class (Week #2), writers will submit their first 3 opening pages for review. Each writer will receive written feedback on those pages via email. 
Week #2 - Opening Page Analysis and Pitching 
  • Volunteers will bring their opening pages to this class and it will be analyzed in the first 30 minutes of class in front of the entire class. 
  • The rest of the class will discuss the do's and don'ts of pitching. 
Week #3 - Pitching and General Meeting 
  • Volunteers will come in with a 5 minute pitch and will pitch to get feedback in front of the class in the first 30 minutes of class.
  • The rest of the class will discuss how to own the room for general meetings. 
Week #4 - Target Homes/Next Steps
  • This week will go into detail on how to find managers, producers, execs, etc right for their projects and how to actually get to those companies. Each writer will get personalized advice on which companies they should be targeting too. 

Week #5 - Shooting Your Own Project

  • This 2 hour class will be a crash course on how to produce, direct and edit your own project!
