BC WLEX Welcome to Frog Level 9 9 9 9 Wow! I loved every second of this. You had one character on a sidewalk, and never once did I think "oh, I've seen that shot already." Loved your sequencing, great NAT sound, great character. You and your reporter worked well together on this one. Great job!

BC WLEX My Hero 8 8 8 9 Man, you were all over the place with this! I bet you got your steps in that day. I loved the sequencing, the framing of the interview in the car, loved the reveals of them walking in a few of those shots. Great pacing. I'm impressed with the steadiness of your walking shots with him. Good job! SB WLEX My Hero 10 9 9 9 Really solid story! Would not do a single thing with this one! JC WLEX My Hero 9 9 9 9 love the open... great eye!
Jesse Burkett-Hall WTIC, Hartford "Elijah"Judges Comments
BC WLEX Elijah 7 8 7 7 I really enjoyed this piece. I loved the framing of the interviews with Elijah, not so much with the other guy up against the wall. Loved how you used the iphone with youtube in the foreground and Elijah in the background. Very creative. Great use of the Go Pro, but it did feel a little repetitive. (But obviously you are featuring a basketball player, so you want to see him dunking the ball.) Tell your reporter he is very brave. Kudos to him for that stand up. SB WLEX Elijah 9 9 9 9 GREAT YOUTUBE CLIP IDEA AT :53! The music at 1:13 was distracting. JC WLEX Elijah 9 9 9 9 Enjoyed the gopro shots. Keep up the great work.

BC WLEX Jones Haywood School of Dance 7 8 8 8 Loved the quick opening shots! You and your reporter did a great job working together, writing to video. Great pace all the way through. The only thing that bothered me was the SOT at 1:44. That room was way too loud. All in all, I loved it. Keep up the awesome work! SB WLEX Jones Haywood School of Dance 8 9 8 9 Great intro. The pacing dropped a little bit during the story.
