9 8 6 9 Excellent story, great moments, terrific reveal/layers, well edited, good pacing. Hope you wind up at a great station like KING one day! Perfect! You've got potential, kid! Check plus! Pacing and breathing room was excellent. Great personal/natural sound bites.

2 5 7 7 Lots of great emotion, creative use of photos, interesting story. Pace was too slow, story way too long. Long, but engaging. Purists will complain about your use of still photos (staged). A few too many rack focuses/pans for my liking. Good job of making a complicated story make sense. Repeated same or similar shots. Photos staged, but consistent and made sense in place of actual footage of victims.

7 6 7 10 Great pacing, well edited, plenty of fun/energy Well done. Keep your interviews in the moment. Interview those women "in the moment" instead of pulling them away. Audio had some issues. Great nat pops.
Kim WihlborgKGTV, San Diego "The Shambles of Tammy's Life"Judges Comments
7 5 4 7 Good opening sequence, very compelling character. A few jump cuts, awkward ending. Overwritten! Lots of missed opportunities for sequences. How did she wind up in the chair?? Opening seemed a bit staged. Graphic/quote was not good, felt out of place with the mood of the story. Confused about the line about her internal organs getting ripped out.
