7 9 8 5 Whoa, great shooting, great audio weaving--- you were a little loose on your axis a couple of times. Great patience! But man, I missed the bigger why!!! You had this great character, he was passionate, entertaining and then we leave him and never hear from him again... Why did he do this, why did he set these up. Such a good character and I feel like we only got half the story. 8 8 9 9 Great shooting and editing. It was very easy and enjoyable to watch and listen to. many great interesting characters, but the main guy kind of got lost in the mix. very good work! 7 9 8 8 "Nice shooting and great edit! I feel like I missed why this is all going on. We started with this dude, but never really put to bow on top in the end with him. Great audio edit too. dealing with all that going on and keeping it where it all makes sense" 8 9 8 10 Character strucure was weak. I wanted to know more about the motivation of the main guy. excellent job shooting and editing. especially the audio editing was very strong. I didnt like the abruptness and dissolves in the opening three shots-- great overall effort with everything story flowed really well. 8 9 9 9 Great character wanted more from him. great job collecting elements and getting them playing, bunch of really nice moments. we missed why did he do this project? some axis breaks on some of the sequences.

8 8 9 8 Lovely work, my heart was warmed by granny--- not much to complain about-- thought the story could have been a little tighter maybe 30 seconds shorter, thought a few of the shots held a beat or two too long. Great moments, nice lighting and shot variety. 8 9 8 8 Very nice. Enjoyed the surprise, though could've built it up a second or so more -- perhaps with a break between the track and the SOT, filled in with a closeup or two of Nana's hands. Nice wide and soft-focus closeups. A smidge too long. 7 7 8 8 Really enjoyed nana in this story, such a memorable character. Well done. The story seemed a bit too long for the info you had, started to get redundant. 8 9 9 8 "Cool handshake intro. Nice gma laughing back n forth. Great reveal! Great shot variety...great audio mix dealing with all that sound. Could have been a bit shorter. Great idea shooting them in different rooms and great job not jumping around with your cuts...really clea" 8 7 8 7 I love the grandma! lots of shot variety and superb audio editng. no major jump cuts, I bet that was a challenge to pull off. Good moments great facial reaction stuff... really memorable story

6 9 8 6 Too long, I feel like this was a 4th of July assignment and they gave you two minutes and you took every second of it. The story really only needed to be 1:30 that being said, beautiful! Nice Work! 6 8 8 8 Loved the opening sequence shots, creative stuff. The one interview of the couple didnt really fit with everything else, the other interviews all had a nice creative look. Great job overall on this story. 7 7 8 8 very nice! well composed pictures and cool shot variety, well thought out interview set ups. Not much of a story here but very well done for what it was. lagged a bit toward the end.

7 7 7 7 Great shooting, great story, the reveal moment was awesome to punctuate that turn in the story. The second emotional parallel park was a bit too much, I lost a little of what the reporter was saying in that, aside from that it was pretty tight... Maybe could have had more of the pictures printed out in the location. 7 7 7 7 Nice reveal to explain why the people were in the river. 7 7 7 7 "That parrallel park was from a 90 year grandma taking her sweet time to get her vehicle inbetween a couple of cars. Really nice visuals. Great setup, great nats. Nice underweater stuff" 8 7 7 7 Nice story, good reveal moment with the daughter. I liked the first parallel park, but the second one was just a bit too long. props for trying it though-- great shooting and editing.
