In this video, BlueCat Founder and Judge Gordy Hoffman discusses screenwriting help books. A lot of writers wonder that in a market that is so saturated with how-to books & videos and screenwriting gurus, how can it be helpful. Gordy says that perhaps all the information in these products are not helpful, but that may not necessarily be the point. The point of these products are to get you to engage with your screenplay. If a video, book, or guru gets you to work on your screenplay, then it was helpful.
