Date and Time: Wednesday 12/19 @ 5:30pm - 6:30pm PT
This session is great for writers with action, adventure, drama, comedy, si-fi, fantasy, & thriller TV pilots & features!
Roadmap Writers is always looking for ways to get our writers in front of super high profile executives to receive the best feedback possible on their projects.
We created Virtual Meetups to allow a small group of 6 writers to pitch in a roundtable setting, ask questions and build a relationship with vetted executives.
Each writer starts with a 5-minute pitch and then it'll open up to a Q&A with the participating executive so you can ask any questions you have on pitching techniques, how to best position a script in the marketplace and the industry overall!
This Virtual Meetup is with Bobby Hoppey (Development Executive, Valparaiso Pictures)!
Bobby Hoppey is a seasoned developer and story analyst who has worked with Roadmap since its inception. In 2018, Bobby joined Valparaiso Pictures, a newly-established development finance and production company that empowers filmmakers to take creative risks, in the role of Director of Development. Valparaiso is focused on growing its slate - engaging on projects across film, television and interactive content. Upcoming credits include PALIMPSEST (directed by Michael Tyburski and produced with Anonymous Content), AFTER PERFECT (to be adapted by Elizabeth Chomko and produced with Matt Reeves' 6th & Idaho), and the short film HOW TO BE ALONE (directed by Kate Trefry of STRANGER THINGS).
Prior to Valparaiso, Bobby spent two years as the primary feature development exec at Echo Lake Entertainment, where he managed the company's film slate with a focus on tracking commercially viable projects with strong thematic content for production and financing opportunities. Prior to his executive roles, Bobby served as assistant to Echo Lake's CEO, Doug Mankoff, and President, Andy Spaulding, in addition to a tenure with the company's talent management actor division where he worked closely with clients such as Dakota and Elle Fanning. Bobby holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from Elon University.
