Let’s face it. There are a million different paths to success. That’s true to some degree for most industries, but even more so for Tinseltown. We get it, and so we understand why it’s important to hear from people who have achieved what you want to achieve. Learn what their obstacles were, how they overcame them, and take what you can from those lessons to apply to your own life.

While it is true that there are as many paths to success as there are people, we can all learn something from how someone else did it. That’s why Roadmap is thrilled to have our lovely alumnus Shawn Parikh back to share his story!

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • Getting started in screenwriting
  • Building your portfolio
  • Networking & meetings
  • Working in the room
  • Live Q&A!
About Your Host

After nailing a kiss and a single line in Bye Bye Birdie in 9th grade, Shawn Parikh knew two things for sure: he loved showbiz and he did not love women. Being a gay Indian-Texan-American pursuing a creative career, he is an uberbrown sheep—although, he did his best to make his parents proud with a forced-and-useless degree in PoliSci and a forced-and-sometimes-useful Master’s in Psych. A student of improv, standup and sketch at UCB & Groundlings, he appeared on shows like Outsourced, Cougar Town, What/If, and Mom. In addition to writing and starring in an independent pilot with Devanshi Patel and a spoof of HBO's The Night Of for Funny or Die, Shawn's short film KHOL (open), starring Sarayu Blue, played a global festival circuit. He is repped by Klasco Entertainment.
