In this video, BlueCat Founder and Judge Gordy Hoffman discusses writing for actors. While screenwriters’ and actors’ personalities are often at odds with one another, it’s important that screenwriters can understand what actors’ get out of performing a well-written character. Understanding this perspective can only improve your writing.
