Whether you like it or not, most production company readers frown on receiving scripts that exceed a two-hour or 120 page limit. I had several older scripts that exceeded that limit by anywhere from 4 to 15 pages and I found a way to trim them all to 120 pages or less. I did it by identifying the least critical scenes in the stories. All the scenes I trimmed were perfectly good scenes but I wanted to get to 120 or below. My most recent features have been averaging between 96 to 105 pages but I do go over that occasionally.
Do you respect the 120 limit or does that inhibit or insult your creativity? Do you think overly long feature screenplays demonstrate a lack of experience?
