Slaughter your darlings!

Wise words on writing a short film from Ben Blaine...

''All the usual stuff for screenwriting holds true for shorts. Think about writing visually, use dialogue sparingly and to purpose, think about structure and the overall shape of the piece...but most of all put your work in the bin and burn it."

Any other advice that anyone has found useful?
