8 9 9 8 Great SOTs. Great NATs. Way to frame up those interviews to keep them interesting. This is a win when most people really just screw this up. Well done. 10 10 9 10 Wow! Hard to mess up a piece like this, but 90 percent of the time that's what happens. The storytelling was well done with the use of emotion, shot selection, and unabtrusive use of nat sound. Great editing. 8 9 9 8 Really good SOT's. They gave life to this story. Just didn't like the track nor the pictures of the fallen cops. Good job!!!

7 8 9 8 You shot the hell out of that. Good job. Love the anticipation shots. You just set your camera up and let crap fly through the screen. Well done. Good NATS. Good characters. Well done. 9 9 9 9 GREAT photograpy, and because of that, the editing process had to be almost automatic and fast. Locking down on shots that you know will be in and out of frame, is priceless. It's the looking ahead and being ready for the shot that makes sequencing work. The reporter must have been elated to have this to work with. A character who was great. What more can you ask for? Solid. 8 9 9 9 Great job telling the story, better job with the visuals

7 7 7 7 I LOVED the clock parts. LOVED them I did. That took me someplace I've never been. Then you lost me in the middle. The METRO shots were sloppy. The standup was clunky. Just cut from the close up of her hand and the ticking to a wideshot of her with the clock. 9 9 10 9 GREAT SHOTS, good editing. Story started strong with good writing. Who threw that damn monkey wrench in there? You know, the stand up. SCREECH. (sound of brakes). Who cares or doesn't know about the Metro? Kept this piece from reaching a 10. Do a stand up with a broken clock or something. 9 8 9 8 Metro look like old archive video. Agree with stand up

7 6 6 6 I loved your character and your setup to the story. Some of the shots were just not good. You had a tripod. Balance that thing. Other shots were wallpaper. They didn't fit. The one thing REALLY missing: The cat he found. We never saw it. Also, I wanted close ups. I didn't get any of those. Take me DEEPER into your story. 10 9 9 10 BOOM! This could've been a 10! Great pix, great blending of real nats, Great storytelling. Heres what cost you a 10. I never saw a shot of the cat that he found. The wide shot after his comment, "hate to think about it", was pure filler, wallpaper. Pay attention. If you questioned that shot, it shouldn't have been used. 9 8 8 8 It's hard to record good video and audio under those conditions
