Meet Our Readers

BlueCat Readers are carefully screened and selected by judge Gordy Hoffman to assist and support our efforts to adjudicate our competition.

Each reader has the difficult task of providing written analysis for each writer who enters BlueCat.

In an effort to give our writers greater insight into the process of our readers when they read your screenplays, we offer these brief interviews with some of our readers.
