Fortunately, this excellent infographic, created by Cartridge Discount, is here to offer some invaluable tips on all those things, including the right sort of length for your opus, common storytelling pitfalls, and the exact formats demanded by American and UK-based production companies before they'll even look at the thing.

So read on and learn; and if you get lucky, make sure we get our 20% OK?
