BVW - KDVR When the Fires End 9 8 8 9 Captured some good emotion of the neighbors, made it more about their struggles than just tthe straight details of the fire itself. Took on more of a human approach. Scanner nats peppered throughout, didn't feel like too much, but I could have used some other nats besides just scanner in there. More of the firemen working in place of just a radio. DA- KDVR When the Fires End 7 7 8 8 Nice story. Good emotion and nice job getting the firefighters mopping up. The edit of breaking up a SOT with a reporter track is good, but was unnecessary doing it twice... It didn't work the first time. Also try not to do interviews other reporters in the back ground. IM-KDVR When the Fires End 9 9 9 9 Great story nice solid shooting love how you mic people

BVW - KDVR Rumors turned Real 8 8 7 8 Good lead-in to the story, gives a little flavor as opposed to just slamming right in to the details.

BVW - KDVR Mom our house is on fire 8 8 7 8 Scanner nats, light shots, radio beeps - all been done before, all parts of a standard spot news NATPKG. But good pacing, and it looked like you were all over with the mic and your shots which helped. Good moment of the kids talking and the one kid saying "I just"... at one point around 1:03 your ch nats go away totally... keep those running underneath to make it sound a lot more complete. Work on fading your audio a lot more, especially with those truck engines in the background it makes east SOT jarring if it isn't faded into properly. DA-KDVR Mom our house is on fire 8 8 8 7 Nice NAT pkg. lots of good things - transitions, nats, sequenceing, framing of interviews. The best sound bite you had 'my house is on fire' was buried in the pkg... needed to move that up higher, thinking right after the NATs to start. Probably could have used more radio NATs. Watch the audio dissolves and transitions. IM-KDVR Mom our house is on fire 8 8 8 8 Solid shooting all the way around, great pacing great framing and story telling.

BVW - KDVR A Mothers Worry 8 8 8 9 Good little reaction piece. I wanted to hear something from the fire official, or from someone who works at the scrapyard or something, to find out what's officially going on. But god job getting neighborhood shots and a good variety of different focal lengths. Nice characters reacting to what's happening in their neighborhood. I want to hear more from the neighbors though. Are they worried the smoke or debris will damage their homes? Afraid of breathing it in? Concerned at all? DA-KDVR A Mothers Worry 7 7 7 7 Short and to the point... you got everything you needed. Open shot was week and probably should have covered part of the first sound bite. Your A2 was really low and needed something to be there. Nice job mixing soundbites. A couple of edits of the smoke where felt jarring... needed to make the medium shots tighter. IM-KDVR A Mothers Worry 8 8 7 8 Great Nat PKG love how moved around got creative and move the mic around. try and give me some more concern and anticipation
