In part 1, I wrote about good repetition. Now here’s an example of the sort of repetition you want to avoid.
You want to be careful that words in the intro (in the last sentence) that ‘throw to your package’ – aren’t repeated in the opening words of the package.
For example: the last words of an intro –
…as the flames rage out of control
first words of the package:
Exploding out of control…the flames…
When subbing intros and scripts, one of the things I look for is to make sure the opening line of the script doesn’t ‘parrot’ (repeat) the intro.
You also don’t want words in a grab (quote from talent) repeating words in the story script throwing to the grab.
