So I recently finished an adaptation of a short drama script I wrote years ago to a feature length and I'm happy with the story's development. However, I'm kind of disappointed that it has come in at a mere 83 pages long... o_O I've used Final Draft Courier and, although I know that I can change the font to Courier New and get my page count up to 100 pages, I find this to be a rather stupid cheat as it also means that everything seems to kick off later than it actually does (apparently FD Courier is set to be as close to the 1 page per minute industry standard as possible - and yes, I know this is just an estimation), so I don't really see the point of that cheat, other than to make myself feel happy without actually doing anything significant. So my question is, while I pride myself in having learned to be more concise - and, boy, verbosity could be my middle name! - I'm wondering if I haven't gone a little to "cut" crazy. The initial first draft was just 78 pages! I nearly fainted. But I went back and looked at certain scenes, looked at opportunities to develop character interactions/relationships that might enhance the story, and have ended up with my current 83 pages. Will such a short script be dismissed out of hand by industry (and, at this juncture, mainly competition) readers?
