Nobody's Judging 8 8 9 9 Nobody's Judging 9 9 10 9 Great shot variety! Use of nat pops were also good. The shot of the dog's feet gave away the surprise factor too early for me, but awesome work! Nobody's Judging 9 9 9 9 Love it! You captured some great moments! The kid in turquoise is gold. The shot of the dog looking up at the kid was great. Simple, impactful sequencing. A lot of the wides did feel similar. Tough in that environment, but could have helped to see different views. I also felt the opening and closing shots were a bit too similar. Nice work!

10 9 9 10 WOW!!! First, the shot variety is fantastic. Takes you from the street to the sweeper. Loved the GOPRO shots on the sweeper, and extra kudos on the time lapse when describing the "2nd pass of through Des Monies this season." Reporter really put some thought into the words that accompied the video. Excellent job! 9 10 10 9 8 8 7 9 Nice job! You captured some great stuff here. The reveal of the sweeper was just right. Pacing is good, nice clean video and audio. But a lot of those shots are similar. Lots of low angle stuff, which I get, but it got to be repetitive.

9 9 9 9 10 9 10 10 Great nats! Loved the shot variety and framing of interviews! 9 10 9 9 Awesome story! The nats brought me right in, the woman's interview through the busted windshield was excellent. Dad's reflection was a nice grab, too. The third shot was very similar to the first. And I would have liked to have seen the kids again, specially for the line about swinging for the fences.

Bone Music 8 8 9 9 You can never go wrong with a visually great story and thats what this is. The characters are developed early and it had me hooked from the beginning. There was a few instances that you go from SOT to a wide shot of video, its a little jumpy. Overall its a great piece. Bone Music 9 8 9 8 Bone Music 8 7 7 8 Love your character! You did a nice job showcasing him. Nice work getting as many perspectives as you did. A couple more wides would have helped, especially when he's showing you the case and in the last bit. The music nats kind of came out of nowhere at the beginning. A slower fade in might have helped the transition.
