Emailed Opportunities: 

I am going to email Top Tier writers with exclusive needs from companies. The subject line will read "Top Tier Marketing". Please send me appropriate material if it fully fits what they are looking for!  Do not email if your material only sort of fits.

 

Marketing Emails:

Please email me:

I will email FIVE companies from that list and email you the list. I will let you know if anyone requests your script.

You can also email me with specific targeted marketing requests and I will email you requested exec if I feel you are a fit for them.

 

Script Read Follow-ups:

Please email me if you need me to follow-up on any script requests from over SIX weeks ago. NOTE: I do not follow-up on marketing emails, only on execs who have requested scripts. I can also follow-up with execs who you directly emailed your script after a roundtable or a general meeting, if you are having difficulty making contact with them.

Feedback:

To help us continue to improve Top Tier, please submit a feedback form at the completion of incubator and matchmaker programs and after general meeting and 15-page read & meet. TT WRITER FEEDBACK FORM

 

General Meetings:

We will email you the link for General Meetings Form.

You must complete a form for each exec you wish to meet.

If the Exec feels you do not fit with their mandate, then the Exec will notify me, and I will arrange an alternative meeting for you.

Assuming there is a fit, the exec will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient meeting time, and you will provide the zoom/skype link.

Make sure that you go to the meeting with some questions for the exec, and be ready to chat with them about what they do and about your other projects. 

After the session, you and the Exec will each complete a Feedback Form.

You should not pressure the Exec during the meeting to escalate your work within their company or network. Let the exec offer. 

We will advise you after the meeting if the exec requests to stay in contact with you.

Contact Julianne if you have any questions. julianneroadmap@gmail.com

 

15 Page Read & Meets (R&M):

We will email you the link for the R&M Form.

You must complete a form for each exec you wish to meet.

You will need to upload the first 15 pages of up to two scripts

and a one-page Synopsis for each project you submit  (This should not exceed 600 words).

o    For Features, this should include:

o    Title / Genre / Format / Comps / Logline

o    A brief synopsis that gives the story arc and major beats, and turning points. 

o    For TV, this should include:

o    Title / Genre / Format / Comps / Logline

o    A paragraph summary of the story

o    A one-sentence description of each of the major characters and their arc

o    A short paragraph summary of the first season

o    A paragraph describing the series arc and where other seasons may go

 

If the Exec feels you do not fit with their mandate, then the Exec will notify me, and I will arrange an alternative meeting for you.

Assuming there is a fit, you and the Exec will organize a mutually convenient meeting time, and you will arrange the zoom/skype link.

These meetings will run for twenty minutes.

At the start of the meeting, the exec will let you know which script they read and may ask you to pitch your story (have a 5-minute pitch prepared just in case). They may also want to chat with you about yourself, your inspiration, and your other projects. So make sure you know your loglines and elevator pitches. And be open to feedback.

After the session, you and the Exec will each complete a Feedback Form.

You should not pressure the Exec during the meeting to escalate your work within their company or network. Let the exec offer. 

We will advise you after the meeting if the exec requests to stay in contact with you.
