Andy Wallace KING Seattle, "Anybody Got a Light?"Judges Comments
BW (WBFF) ANYBODY GOT A LIGHT 7 4 4 7 Weak opening shot. Track-heavy. Good character, great sound. JG (WBFF) ANYBODY GOT A LIGHT Good character w/ good moments. Seemed like a side bar piece. CL (WBFF) ANYBODY GOT A LIGHT Edit nats tighter, good character, would like less back shots of character - get in front of him! AD (WBFF) ANYBODY GOT A LIGHT Nice open. Good character. Nice job...seemed a little short.
John WilsonKSL, Salt Lake, "A Windy Mess"Judges Comments
BW (WBFF) A WINDY MESS 4 6 4 7 Great nats and pacing. Some pretty shots in the beginning. Bruce is on camera too much. Weak closing shot, ended abruptly. JG (WBFF) A WINDY MESS First 3 shots had the right side of the screen obstructed. One time is good enough. Bruce is on camera too much. Ended abruptly. CL (WBFF) A WINDY MESS Two similar shots w/ trees in beginning. Good rake nats, you show the guy on the camera too much, don't shoot. Signs are boring, weird pan of trees. No closing shot. AD (WBFF) A WINDY MESS Nice beginning & use of sound. No closing shot. Way to move that mic!
Adam SoteloKSL, Salt Lake, "Piano Lesson Cancelled"Judges Comments
BW (WBFF) PIANO LESSON CANCELLED 5 6 3 7 Great nats. Way to find a character to focus the story on. Great "chicken salad out of chicken sh*t" story. Needed more nats. Some soft shots. Terrific visuals! JG (WBFF) PIANO LESSON CANCELLED Had a chance to reveal the car and didn't. Should have gone inside the piano studio! Good story CL (WBFF) PIANO LESSON CANCELLED Axis breaks. Too much PIO, just show once. Good closing shot. A bit too many car shots. AD (WBFF) PIANO LESSON CANCELLED Could have revealed the car a little later. You found a good character. Would loved to start w/ her playing piano, mixing music more into the piece.
