Screenplay Live! allowed me something most unproduced screenwriters never get: the ability to see my work performed in front of an audience. It was an invaluable, learning experience to see an audience react emotionally to a story that, until then, was only the page. You never know how an audience will react, and their comments during the Q&A guided me through a rewrite. What Gordy and BlueCat do with Screenplay Live! is, in its way, more valuable than money.
