We taught students this lesson as they began to write their scripts. It give them a clear idea on how writing for film needed a specific pace.
We watched and discussed 3 media clips that displayed various pacing levels.
Students read "Heart Trouble" by William C. Martell and discussed the intricacies he was talking about in terms of pacing in films.
(e.g. rubrics, examplars, websites, etc.)

This is a quick and powerful lesson. It can mean the difference between a show that drags on and one that is engaging.
