We want to help you connect, grow, and accelerate your career in television and film.

 

Committed to advancing new narratives and perspectives, the Marketable Filmmaker Mentorship Program provides a diverse slate of workshops, educational resources, and professional development and networking opportunities for a group of diverse writers.

Marketable Filmmaker Mentorship Program consists of three separate tracks: television writing, screenplay writing, packaging for pitch.

Creative writers will engage in a comprehensive writing experience, developing an original pilot or feature from concept ideation to a fully polished and packaged script.

TESTIMONIALS

"I found the course to be thorough and informative. It provided me with a comprehensive overview of how to structure and logistically outline and develop my script and plan so that the I remain organized and focused throughout the process.  For me, the course was an beneficial  first step in allowing me to conceptualize the film as an organic synergy with all of its components ie locations, characters , obstacles and journeys outlined in a way that is manageable and workable rather than overwhelming. The course also showed me that having the script carefully mapped out saves time, money, and aggravation during the process. And the planning ensures a greater degree of quality in the finished project as important details are addressed that contribute to overall success of the film."

"As a business owner of a small production studio, I can say Ashlee's class really helped me to understand the important tasks I need to focus on when acting as a producer on my films and videos.  Producing is hard, and so many facets to producing that it is difficult to be able to cover so much in one class, but that is exactly what Ashlee managed to give me; relevant and thorough producer information that I can take straight to my work environment and begin implementing.  She manages to get so much more out of this class than someone should be able to in the time span, which I think is an attribute to her teaching, and her producing....and it's just what a good producer would do."
