I'm having second act troubles at the moment. I put my script in to Final Draft and it's come out at 40 pages long so far, that's for act 1 (20 pages) and the first half of act 2 (20 pages). I was always taught that a minute of script is roughly one page, and that is how it has always worked with radio scripts in the past. I am currently writing a TV drama (45 minutes long). What are peoples thoughts? Should I try to cut things down a bit? The story certainly wouldn't suffer from cutting the second half of act two out... maybe that's a bigger problem.
