There's also the old truism that films generally run to a page a minute?

From: Raymond E. Feist
Date: 25 August 1999

Actually, the "page a minute" is for a screenplay, not a novel.  You can spend pages describing something that a film shows in 30 seconds. Conversely, you can write something in a paragraph that might take ten minutes of film to show.

Best, R.E.F.
