My first version of "When the Music Stops" became five pages instead of ten. That is good. I did my best to write it as short as possible, to find what was absolutely essential for the story to work. If it had turned into ten pages at this stage I would have been in trouble.
The script I have now works, in terms of structure and content, but the audience wouldn’t have time to grasp what was going on before the movie was ended. There is no time to breathe and reflect.
Now I will take this rough piece of work and add what will give the story its soul.
