For the first time in my writing life I think my script is going to come out too short. I almost always overwrite but this time I was so focused on keeping it lean that I'm almost 10 pages shy of where I thought I was going to land. Is it good or bad? I'm not sure yet. This film is supposed to be my first feature, hopefully it's still long enough to be a feature and not just a short. I'm proud that I managed to make it this short, the first two drafts were over 140 pages so coming in around 85 is a hell of a trim. I should finish up this draft today and then go through once more before starting on pre-productions. Trapped in the Woods is finally coming together.
