Posts Per Day
Gordy Hoffman, the award-winning writer/director (LOVE LIZA, A COAT OF SNOW) and founder of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, returns to London to lead a workshop focused on the First Act November 8th.

The creative principles of the workshop were borne out of over a decade of experience of judging the only major script competition in the world helmed by a produced screenwriter, a writer who continues to write today.

The BlueCat workshops help the writer develop the authentic, original voice behind every story that impacts the emotions of the audience, the essence of all commercially and artistically successful films.

If you care passionately about your script and story, this workshop will provide the tools to transform your commitment and concern into a compelling film.


This workshop will consist of 12 writers each submitting the First Act of a work in progress in advance. We will go over each work individually, discussing specifically how the first act functions in a screenplay as the beginning of a story. This discussion will include the the challenges of organic exposition, the introduction of compelling characters, and how the first act establishes completely why an audience will invest emotionally in your movie.

Each writer will submit their act approximately one week in advance of the workshop and will receive a short written reaction from Gordy alongside their participation in the workshop. Writers will be encouraged to exchange written feedback as well.
