To shorten it you have to figure out why the swing tends to get long and I think that's happening with Brian on Evolvr. Making sure the right arm doesn't bend past 90 degrees and making a good pivot.
I do agree that the way your mind "sees" the timing of your backswing has to change a little. So my answer would be a little of the first option, slow the pacing a bit on the backswing, not half speed, just a little slower. I think this and the right arm work will shorten the length of the backswing. And even though the "time" it takes to make a backswing might be the same, the length you take the arms back will be shorter. What I just recommended is for full speed swings, obviously not slow drill swings
Good swing I think for you to watch, notice how the pacing of the backswing, even the start of the downswing, is pretty even.
EDIT: Just saw the swing you posted, better!
