Default Re: SCRIPT LENGTH: let's take a poll

i think anything under 120 is still acceptable.

there are some genres that are generally longer because the tech set up and world building require more detail: epics, sci-fi, action, some thrillers.

rom-coms, comedies, dramas and horror are typically shorter to support less complicated plots. they're also typically lower budgets. 90 pages seems to be the sweet spot, though there are exceptions.

there is also a difference between writing styles; some writers present scripts with a spartan style and lots of white space while other have dense action lines.
