I created the script for Reid Narration using a lot of elipses. Anyone that knows me knows this is not new… It’s coming in handy though – especially for writing narration. I’ve listened to over 80 of TAL and like training, I can sense the improvement. It’s already helping me in my narration.
From Radio: An Illustrated Guide it talks about elipses or in the guides taxonomy; dot-dot-dot. Specifically they suggest, “Write the way you talk. If there’s any phrase in your script that you wouldn’t actually say to a person in a real conversation at dinner, rewrite. These dot-dot-dot sentence constructions are normal in radio scripts, but would never cut it in newspaper.”
