I'm writing a script that has a news broadcast sequence to establish the background of the story, and then we see the main character is watching this news broadcast to transition from worldbuilding to POV.
As a director i'd want the news story to play fullscreen then the camera pulls back from the screen to show the room with the character and... story go. Nothing new here, but i'm stuck on how to write this :
Would it be best to break it into 2 scenes : 1. INT, STUDIO. NIGHT - Newsreader and dialogue of the newsreader verbatim. 2. INT, LIVINGROOM. DAY - TV is visible playing the end of the news broadcast, while MC does something.
Or is it one scene - INT, LIVINGROOM. DAY - and tv is mentioned upfront playing with all the details of the news broadcast?
I'm not sure how to break it up correctly.
