Re: Fan Film Writer's Primer

Yep. It's tricky. On a feature script I wrote, the Executive Producer was often asking me to shorten the script to bring it down to 120 pages or less (it was about 126), but I had to point out to him there were a lot of action sequences in which some things that took an 8th of a page on paper would be maybe 4 seconds on screen, which I felt threw the time count if you assumed 1 minute per page for the whole thing.
