BFC WLEX It Ain't Easy Hawking 7 8 7 7 Enjoyed the opening sequence. Good NATs. The ground shots of the papers were over done, one would have been better. It probably wasn't easy shooting with all that traffic, so kudos to you. JC WLEX It Ain't Easy Hawking 7 7 7 7 good idea and worked nicely...would have like more nats of traffic weaved in but thats just me...nice job BW WLEX It Ain't Easy Hawking 8 9 9 9 What an interesting take on a spot news story.

BFC WLEX Ya Hear Me 6 6 7 6 Good NAT sound of the presents. Would have liked to see more of a variety shots in the opening sequence. Lots of ECUs and one wide, no real medium shot. The sequence did however grab my attention and kept the pace of the story going. JC WLEX Ya Hear Me 7 5 7 7 good use of nats thru out...nice interview with lady in window... BW WLEX Ya Hear Me 5 5 6 6 nice interview shot through the window. difficult story to illustrate, but you humanized it well. BG WLEX Ya Hear Me 7 7 7 7 nice job. liked the interview framed in the window.

BFC WLEX We're Getting Married 6 6 7 6 News vehicles stand out like a sore thumb in news pkgs. That was all I could think about for the first minute. There wasn't enough variety of shots. Too many medium shots. Thought it was written well and had lots of room for moments, but a few were missed. JC WLEX We're Getting Married 5 5 5 6 foggy lens was distracting...could you have taken it off...mic up the pastor or put a mic somehwere...shotgun mic was not helpful BW WLEX We're Getting Married 7 7 7 7 Got the sense that you guys kind of stumbled into this story while covering other stuff. in which case good job, thinking on the fly. If not, story crafted well begin to end. Little sloppy at the start with the news car. BG WLEX We're Getting Married 7 6 8 5 i know humidity sucks, but you can't win awards with a foggy lens. This could have been an amazing package if there had been more attention to details like the lens. also, news car in the background ruined it for me too. be committed to excellence in every shot.
