Beyond the Pitch: Crushing the Meeting image

You’ve worked day and night on your pitch. Now, you find yourself in front of a producer and finally have a chance to pitch your script …and they request it! Your work is done, right?

Unfortunately, not yet. 

What happens after the pitch? Maybe the producer or exec passes on your script. If so, why? Are you falling into tropes you don’t even know you’re falling into? Looking at the bright side, what happens if the producer or exec likes the script and calls you into a meeting? Now your work is done…right?

Still, no. 

Many writers work tirelessly on perfecting their pitch and take dozens of classes in an effort to perfect their pages. But what happens when the trained writer is thrown into a meeting? This is a prime opportunity to build a relationship but more often than not writers are ill prepared.

Owning the room is one of the most important elements of the business of screenwriting and Joey Tuccio, the CEO of Roadmap Writers, is here to teach this invaluable class focused on tips and techniques to help you immediately stand out. Learn real world tactics to push your career further than you ever thought.  

This class will cover:

  • Pitching pointers
  • How to impress an execs and producers by page 10
  • Preparing for your meetings
  • Your secret weapon to instantly winning over an exec or producer
  • How to start and end meetings
  • Best ways to follow up
  • How to be put up for writing assignments with that exec or producer
