Genre: How important is it?

A fun sit-down with Gordy Hoffman, founder and judge of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, answering questions from up and coming filmmakers and screenwriters. In this episode, Gordy explains the value of good storytelling when it comes to genre.

Follow your passion.


Don’t restrict yourself to a genre when you write. Let your story dictate where things go. Sometimes you may start writing something in one genre, and before you know it, the story will have morphed into something else. If that’s the case, go with the flow. The story is the driving factor in any script, and you should always focus on making it the best it can be. 


Ask your own questions on Facebook and Twitter and make sure to keep writing!

    Thanks Gordy! When I write sometimes it does cross genres. I found it hard containing the script in that box.
