My main location gets introduced 3/4 of the way on page 2 of my script, and continues to be the predominant location until the very end. It's also the place where the main action happens.

In your experience, is this going to be enough? I did feel like my script needed a lead up to the main location.

Thanks for your help, and good luck everybody!

Yes. As long as it's majority and important things happen there, it's ok to have other locations included too. Smile
