9 8 8 9 This was a great piece from beginning to end. Great commitment and creativity. Way to stick with the story til it's conclusion. It paid off. 8 9 8 9 Great nats and varied shots. Flowed very well and kept my attention the entire time. 9 8 9 9 Excellent use of NATS and consistent editing of audio really made this story come alive. Also a very good beginning, middle and end!

7 8 7 8 Nice opening. Crisp Editing. Nice rack focus shot of body. Way to make an "After the fact" story sing. 6 7 8 7 Nice use of nats to drive the story and make an otherwise static accident scene seem a little more alive. 7 7 7 7 Nice editing montage at the top to make the story move. It gave a good idea to the viewer of the dangerous road conditions at the time of the accident.

6 6 7 6 Cool effect on the "Petty and stupid" sound bite. Good effort for making another "after the fact" story more interesting. 6 5 6 6 Liked the shots through shattered glass and attempting to try something different. 8 9 9 9 Very creative shots for a very mundane type of story. Wish it didn't end so abruptly. I wanted to see more!

6 7 6 7 Nice use of sticks. Good artsy shots of the flames. Creative shot of the flags with the smoke in the background to illustrate the winds. 6 7 6 6 Good fundamentals, nice shots of flames. Seems like you were kept a good distance from the scene. 6 6 7 7 Dramatic fire video....wish the Nats were up a bit higher in the fire shots.
