DC WCSH A hero's legacy 8 9 9 10 Excellent job! Very creative transitions. The faders moving and the speaker rumbling were great shots and showed the attention to detail in this piece. Everything was cut perfectly in time with the music. CC WCSH A hero's legacy 8 9 9 9 This was awesome. Loved the story. Great variety of shots and well-composed sequences. Would have preferred more kids being taught instead of just photos, but hey, those are the limitations of a day turn sometimes. Nicely done. DW WCSH A hero's legacy 8 9 9 9 Really really liked this. The piece moved and an awesome amount of nat sound was worked into what otherwise was a fairly short piece. Great tight shooting and the writing tied it all together Nice job! JB WCSH A hero's legacy 8 8 8 9 Great shot selection, great sequencing, great use of nats, pacing, lighting and used the nats of the surprises to carry the transitions

DC WCSH Lemonade for Ty 8 7 8 8 Ty's mother was excellent. Great, thoughful, emotional sound. She made the story. That said, I would have liked to have heard from the kids about Ty, at least for one quick bite. JB WCSH Lemonade for Ty 9 9 9 9 Goddam that was beautiful. Insane writing to video and amazing use of nats. Its a story I will remember CC WCSH Lemonade for Ty 9 9 9 9 That was excellent. Well-written, shot, and edited. It certainly didn't feel like a 1:53 piece, and I almost did not realize that the woman seemed to be the only set-up interview. A+.

DW WCSH Rock steady 9 10 9 9 Excellent piece. Great blending of a variety of shots --especially liked the opening one. Nat sound, writing and awesome, awesome sound. The only aspect I might have changed was the length. It seemed to go on just a little longer than it had to, meaning the last lines seemed like they were repeating points already made or implied earlier in the piece. DC WCSH Rock steady 8 9 8 6 Great story. Awesome shooting and editing. I really wanted to hear nats of the gloves and the punching bags. The "it's not too soon" sequence was clever, but the shot with two Brads was a little corny and staged. The fact that everyone at the gym has parkinsons could have been a much bigger reveal. But the story still flowed nicely and was enjoyable to watch. JB WCSH Rock steady 9 10 10 9 Well done! Quick nat hits combined with fast paced editing, great story and great effects with the split screen.

DW WCSH Smelly situation 9 8 8 9 Great job turning an otherwise low-b/roll piece into something that captured my attention. It flowed very well, had a great cast of characters, fun topic, clear writing and nice shooting/editing. The only aspect I might have changed is the stand-up. It was a neat concept but I'm not sure the fishbowl was the best way to illustrate the point. DC WCSH Smelly situation 9 8 9 9 This was fun but still illustrated the issue well. Great personal angle. Even the mayor was good sound. The standup was cool too. Maybe you could have brought the dog owner back at the end for a quick bite and more circular storytelling. JB WCSH Smelly situation 9 6 7 8 Pretty good. Needed better composition with the mayor interview, and more nats of the water. Audio needed to be dissolved
