RC KARE Anchor Lumber Fire 7 7 7 7 Nice moments captured. Edit was clean. Felt you could have got a few more nat sound opportunities. Change up the shot on your sot bites, helps in the edit. Nice job. IP KARE Anchor Lumber Fire 6 7 6 7 Writing was good, I felt informed, but not taken into the piece. In that sense, it felt a bit flat. Would have liked some more natural sound, and tighter shots of the firefighters and action as a whole. JS KARE Anchor Lumber Fire 6 7 6 6 Solid throughout, but nothing especially grabbed me in sound or sequences. The nat breaks all could've been cut tighter...felt like there was a "wait for it" on every one, even the back-to-back ones. Amping up the pacing of cuts in general could've made it move along more.

RC KARE HE WAS BURNIN 7 6 6 7 Way to not get pushed back. Usually your a mile a way from wreckage. Good get on the farm owner. Could have used a few more nats. IP KARE HE WAS BURNIN 8 5 5 6 The main interview made this story. While the crew got there a bit after the crash happened, his re-telling of the story really makes me feel like I was there when it happened. Shots of the field were good, some more natural sound would have really made the story; troopers crunching through the field, that sort of thing JS KARE HE WAS BURNIN 7 7 6 6 Good witness. Tough location to get more shots, but it still could've used a few to keep it moving. Could've covered at least one more witness bite, especially since they're all the same framing.

RC KARE what could go wrong 5 5 5 5 Wrong category. IP KARE what could go wrong - Intersting story, but wrong topic- this isn't spot news. I liked the sequencing of the shots in the piece. The short sound from several people stuck without a car made the piece move. But again, wrong category. JS KARE what could go wrong 7 8 8 8 I like the pacing of this pkg. Good opening sequence. Good shots to keep it interesting for content that is essentially just people standing around.
