I'm adapting a children's story I wrote years ago into screenplay format. My girlfriend intends to use it for her animation storyboarding class final. The one thing I'm unclear about is timing. In normal live action I've always written one page to one minute of film. But in animation this seems different, there are far too many action elements that take up a lot of space on the page, but doesn't eat up that much screen time. Any thoughts?

With animation you have to time the voice over script & work backwards!
