I'm writing a screenplay that incorporates various news shots. I plan to use various news shots as expositions. My story takes place in the future, and I want various news shots that display the top stories that portray the political climate of the fictional world I want to create.
What I'd like to do is set the scene in my opening shot as follows---
NEWS REPORTS EXT. THE SUPREME COURT BUILDING - DAY
A young man, TERRELL BROWN is surrounded by the PRESS. A LAWYER, is escorting him up the steps to court to challenge a landmark case in the supreme court.
NEWS REPORTER(V.O) Terrell Brown is being escorted into The Supreme court building .
INT. SOUND-ROOM - SAME TIME
A young pundit, AYITA JONES is hosting her own podcast. She's talking to guest, DEVON EVANS about the case.
AYITA What do you think will the outcome of this case? DEVON I believe that it could set a new precedent for the country.
I want the scenes of news shots to act as intercalery shots to set the stage and act as exposition, in between the dramatic scenes of the script.
How am I supposed to format a news shot in screenwriting? Am I already on the right track or not?
