    True, but I think you need to indicate what we're seeing. BLACK makes it clear without stopping the reader dead in his tracks.

    I do it like this...


    VOICE
    It was supposed to go a hell of a lot better.

    FADE IN:

    EXT. MANHATTAN - DAYBREAK


    That's how I do it... because you can't know who's speaking - we haven't met anyone yet. and you can't fade into blackness...

    maybe they won't do that to you because there's nothing wrong with opening a script like that.

    They won't do that to me.

    That's because I'm me.

    Last time I posted an OVER BLACK with sound FX intro in Script Pages I got ripped up for ass paper! Tough audience!

    I think the FADE IN: should come after whatever you want on the blackness.

    That has a certain logic to it, actually. Thanks, all.

    I did this with one of my scripts and also used Captain's approach.

    you can't really "fade in" to black.

    here is the opening of a script of mine in which i did something similar:

    BLACKNESS

    The sound of rain spattering on water.

    Heavy, uneven breathing.

    FADE IN:

    EXT. OCEAN'S SURFACE -- NIGHT

    Rain pounds on the water, creating billions of tiny explosions as the drops collide with the ocean's surface.


    which is, of course, basically the same as edison's example.
