What is ENG? It is the process of reporting events and activities that occur outside of the television studio. It is getting the story and presenting this information to the viewer.
Rule of Threes This rule states that the audio and video segments should be grouped in threes changing the format or style of the segments after every three sentences: three sentences of reporter standup three sentences of reporter narration over footage two or three sentences of interviews or comments by guests three sentences of reporter standup summary
Sound Bites These are small segments (two to five seconds) of video and audio clips that remain intact and inserted in the project. Different from B-Roll in that it is footage from the actual event.
Lead-In Two or three sentences that enable the viewer to quickly grasp the content of the report. Essential for informing the viewing audience about the topic
Stand-Up On-camera shot of a reporter as he or she presents information about the topic.
Tag Identifies the reporter (by name) and station affiliation. This is Scott Smith for LCTV. For LCTV, this is Scott Smith. Reporting for LCTV, this has been Scott Smith. We need a standard sign-off.
Talking Heads Bust shots of people giving comments and opinions about the event or activity. The reporter is not seen on camera, and sometimes the question is not heard, but only the guests responses. Always use titles to identify the person.
