Default Re: How do you signify a short break between two different shots?

The two shots belong to the same sequence but they're not quite continuous as obviously a short amount of time has elapsed. What's the accepted way of writing the second slug?
"MINUTES LATER" or "MOMENTS LATER" depending on the amount of time. I don't know if that's the right way to do it or not, but it's the way I would do it.
STANDARD DISCLAIMER: I'm a wannabe, take whatever I write with a huge grain of salt.
