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?
Joey Tuccio, the CEO of Roadmap Writers, and Dorian Connelley, the COO of Roadmap Writers, have created a month-long online program to help writers from anywhere in the world with the newly formed Ultimate Writers Toolkit!
This unique month-long online program will walk 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.
In only 3 years, Joey and Dorian have guided over 100 writers to getting signed, optioned and sold and have set up countless writers on general meetings with executives to build relationships that they can use for their entire career. This month-long program will help each writer find their voice and sharpen the tools they need to break into the industry.
Week #1 (6-9pm PT) | Orientation and Logline Clinic: Get set up for the month with our Orientation and Logline Clinic!
Week #2 (6-9pm PT) | A Formula for Pitching: Learn all the different sections of an effective pitch for a feature or TV project, including a format and formulas for every aspect of your pitch.
Week #3 | Pitching & General Meetings: Come in with a 5-minute pitch and pitch for feedback in front of the class. Following the roundtable, we'll discuss how to own the room in a general meeting.
Week #4 | Opening Pages 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!)
Week #5 | Target Homes & Next Steps: This week will go into detail on how to find managers, producers, execs, and companies right for your project and how to actually get to those companies. Each writer will get personalized advice on which companies they should be targeting and next steps for your screenwriting career.
"I could listen to Joey all day. He took me way out of my comfort zone and I had such a great time. I feel reinvigorated and have been writing like a demon since I got back. If anyone is thinking of attending one of Joey's events, I'd say get your ticket early. His expertise, charisma and positive energy will fire your neurons up. He's unmissable."
- Teresa Bee, Screenwriter
"Toolkit is a whirlwind of incredible jam-packed information! Joey is warm, hilariously unfiltered, and an absolute expert in his field. After the program, I immediately worked through the buried blocks and fears that were keeping me from writing a script that is crucial to me."
- Monique Amado, Screenwriter
"Prepare for a load of knowledge, truth bombs, and laughs."
- James Allen, Screenwriter
