I would like to take a part in screenplay competition. The main goal is a script for a short film (8 - 10 minutes).
I have several questions about it:
- How long should the script be?
- How many elements it should consist of? (It is a writer's competition, so, the director(s) will ask the writer details if necessary, not sure).
- Are there any examples of scripts of this length of short films?
- Should I worry about time metrics at the end of editing? (Dialogs could take a lot of time, for example, while action scenes are very quick).
