Historical & True Story Webinar Bundle

We at Roadmap have been hearing from execs and reps alike that scripts based on true stories are a hot commodity these days. And we can see why! When you hear that the movie or show you've just seen actually happened, you look at the story differently. Learning that Harriet Tubman really led soldiers for the Union Army and just how dire the situation in Dunkirk, France was gives the story a bigger punch. 
After all, truth is often stranger than fiction!  

Each individual webinar is usually $34, but all together they are just $43 - a savings of $93!
