Default Format at FADE IN

The script begins in King’s Auditorium in London where a band is playing the Beatle’s music to an audience but I want us to first focus on three posters on the wall. The music and crowd noise are important also. Then we pull back to see what’s happening. How should I format this?

Thanks.

Option 1

FADE IN:

CLOSE ON THREE POSTERS on the wall. The first depicts a sunny scene of the English countryside, the second is of some animals on a farm and the last is of the serene Atlantic ocean at sun rise.

In the background we hear the Beatles’ HEY JUDE with people’s soft voices singing along.

INT. LONDON – KING’S AUDITORIUM - NIGHT

We PULL BACK to see a band playing on stage with the audience humming and singing along.
