THE BLUECAT WORKSHOP   Screenwriting Seminar with Gordy Hoffman

Do you have a great idea for a movie? Have you started your screenplay, but unable to finish? Maybe you've written your script, and you're struggling with your rewrite.

Sundance Film Festival Award Winner and BlueCat founder and judge Gordy Hoffman is now conducting live all-day workshops on the art of screenwriting.

The Art of Screenwriting Workshop will include topics such as selecting an idea, finding your creative voice, scripting effective dialogue, compelling character arcs, the rewrite, effective story construction, audience relationship, work habits and discipline, production alternatives, industry awareness and more.

The Advanced Script Intensive will allow screenwriters to review their scripts in an intimate setting of 10 writers or less. All writers in the Advanced Workshop will submit an excerpt of 10 pages prior to the workshop to ensure an intense, inspirational session.

Both Workshops will focus on measuring your screenwriting challenges, cultivating your fresh ideas, as well as encouraging and inspiring your true instincts for storytelling in movies.

Please bring your laptops or pen and paper---we will be screenwriting!
