BM WFAA WAX MUSEUM 9 8 8 9 FANTASTIC. Great reveal. Just a great story build. One small jumpcut. And one nat that would have been more effective if it were three seconds later (when lincoln slumped over dead). JB WFAA WAX MUSEUM 9 9 8 8 Great job at gathering NAT sound and weaving it into the story.I couldn't look away. TL WFAA WAX MUSEUM 9 9 8 8 Great reveal, great way to get in there and get great nats. Loved the way you put it together,

BM WFAA CRIME IS GETTING STRONGER IN RAINER VALLEY 8 8 8 9 Very solid. Your elements were there and they were showcased well. Great sequences. Editing. I even liked the way you shot the meeting. The interview felt like they were still in the middle of the meeting. And maybe they were and that's why it felt like that but I coulda swore the guy was looking at you and the camera during the bite. JB WFAA CRIME IS GETTING STRONGER IN RAINER VALLEY 8 9 9 9 Great Job. I really liked the reveal. I wasn't expecting it to take the turn that it did. Very solid work. it fell a little flat in the middle but not for long. TL WFAA CRIME IS GETTING STRONGER IN RAINER VALLEY 7 8 8 9 Loved the reveal, great elements and great connection to what could have been a very boring meeting.

BM WFAA DIGITAL NOSTALGIA 8 9 8 8 I really liked the look of the piece for some reason. Simple, effective. The beginning was the best way to possibly start it. If you knew you were shooting a nats piece, it would have benefitted from some character narration about what the place is and its history. Maybe that info was in the anchor intro? JB WFAA DIGITAL NOSTALGIA 8 8 7 8 I thought the intro held a lttle too long. The NATS we competeing with the interviews way too much at times. I had to really focus to hear what the were talking about. I would have liked to see some more sequencing especially in the nat breaks. TL WFAA DIGITAL NOSTALGIA 8 7 8 8 Good story telling, would have loved to see more emotion or come full circle to a new generation. Good use of nats and movement
