Workshops & Consultations

Gordy Hoffman, the Sundance award-winning writer/director (LOVE LIZA, A COAT OF SNOW), is available for one hour, in-person script consultations.

Gordy will read your script in advance, and then when he’s in town, he will meet with you at your convenience to provide notes to you and discuss your script in depth for one hour. He will answer all your questions and give you a clear path forward on rewriting your draft, as well as answer any specific questions you might have about screenwriting and filmmaking. The consultation is designed to support the development of your screenplay and you as a screenwriter overall.

Once you’ve booked the consultation, we will determine the location and time that’s convenient while Gordy’s in town. If you have any questions regarding logistics or scheduling before you register for the consultation, please contact the BlueCat office at [email protected]

Gordy has taught graduate screenwriting courses at USC and UCLA, as well as led workshops all over North America, Australia, New Zealand, Poland and England. He’s presented at numerous writing conferences, including IFP Script to Screen Conference, Lit Week at Lighthouse Workshop, Willamette Writers Conference, Script DC Conference, as well as serving as the judge for the McKnight Screenwriting Fellowships in Minnesota. A proud Jayhawk, he sits on the Professional Advisory Board of the Film and Media Studies Department at his alma mater, the University of Kansas.

Gordy’s short film, DOG BOWL, had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Program. He’s currently developing a feature for Abigail Spencer.

Gordy Hoffman founded the BlueCat Screenplay Competition in 1998 and remains its judge.

Note: Screenplays submitted for the consultation are not eligible to be entered into the BlueCat Screenplay Competition.
