Question by TrickyKruga: How many scenes and characters should be in a short film?
I have to produce a ten minute short film and I am really struggling with my script. I have noticed that my original solo character is meeting with up to eight others and the number of scenes just keep growing and growing. What makes a good short film? And by putting all these scenes and characters into the story, can it confuse the audience. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Keep it short, sweet and to the point. The best short films are usually the most simple. Axe any characters or scenes that don’t advance your story – they are unnecessary.
