  • Video Camera/ POV?

    I want to write this scene where we see the action taking place through a video camera. After a minute or two, we'll go into the scene as normal.

    How do I slug this/set it up?

    EXT. ALLEY - NIGHT

    Dood regards the Anderson house.

    EXT. ANDERSON HOUSE - POV VIDEO CAMERA

    Another dood does something criminal.

    EXT. ANDERSON HOUSE - NIGHT

    First dood saves the day.

    This is how I would do it.


    EXT. ANDERSON HOUSE - NIGHT

    Dood points his video camera at the Anderson house.

    VIDEO CAMERA'S POV:

    Another dood does something criminal.

    BACK TO SCENE:

    First dood saves the day.

      Deus' way would be my way as well.

      /waits for TwoBradBradley to come along and lecture Boobs about why her question is inherently flawed (TwoBrad will say it's the director's job to decide such things, not the spec writer's; her job is to tell a story in as simple a manner as possible, almost like an outline in screenplay format, yada yada yada yada)

                I'd do it the same was as proposed by deus. In fact, I have.

                Nice when that video camera POV is germane to the story.

                    I don't. My writing's bad enough as it is.
