Turn off LCD during video on G9

I would like to beable to turn off the display while in movie mode.

If I just do:
set_backlight(0)
exit_alt

It seems to work?  I have to go into alt mode, press the shutter once to turn off the display, then press the shutter again to start recording.

However, Ideally, I'd like to keep the screen on when I have the shutter half pressed so I can focus, then have it turn off when I do the full press.  However, since the shutter controls the script, I don't think that would work.

Doesn't it work if you press ALT and then shutter to run the script during video record?
