OK. I have come to notice something. Seems to me that the ideal SPEC script is super thin. Lots of white space. I sense that folks (advisors to new writers) really want to see around 2 lines of action and 1-2 lines of dialogue at a time. I get that for many reasons. It forces economy of words and makes it an easy read. Here's the thing though. If you go and read hundreds / thousands of scripts from actual movies -- those scripts look nothing like that. So my question is how thin is too thin and does that differ at different points of the process? It's an interesting question. SIDE NOTE Does a thin script have the potential to 1) Move too quickly and 2) lack something in character development. I have read some thinly written scripts that have had great character development it can be done but I think it would be something new writers would really struggle with -- balancing thin with telling a story.
