- Love the matchbox car, nat of wind blowing debris and the cut of the dog. - Well Done. Very good storytelling and Shooting, great Nats! - So Good! no real critique, so stupid good... I did like the 2nd to last shot as a closer better. - Good mix of nats, scanner. rain or water drop was a little too quick, not needed rain was a given.

- Way to properly build up to the reveal. Loved the story, great shooting and structure... Very nice spot news - Good job. Introducing lawnmower paired with closing shot worked. Good cell phone shot. touching story. you really got across the feeling of love and concern they had for this man. This is what we are suppose to do on stories like this as journalists, great job! - Everything was super clean. Towards the end your shooting was a litttle sloppy with some iffy cuts. I really liked that you stuck with the story till the end. Gave it a nice conclusion. Also really liked that the lawn mower was saved till the final shot. I think most photogs would've wallpapered that thing for the last 10 seconds of the package. Good job saving that till the end - Nice shots, nice pacing., good build to the surprise, sad surprise. very nice story structure. very nice transition shots. Im just not a fan of the pic on the phone on the hood of the car. it doesnt fit the time and place for me. maybe if searchers are in the background. Also shot of searchers legs seems crooked. great job overall, writing was also nice. Im guessing good collaboration with you and the reporter nice job sticking with it all the way. watch your shadow on the walking shot. didnt like the dissolves at the end - Good idea with the cellphone pic. love the riding mower at the end. sots work well to tell the story. too much video of searchers from behind

- A little sloppy in spots, didnt like the mic cable hanging out of the dudes shirt, some of the nats seemed hollow, make sure your mic is in there as close as possible. Great effort, it was a really big fire. -Nice hustle to get many different elements to tell this story. well done. nice nats in between action and reporters vo - Nice job getting nats from all those witnesses. great close up shots and nice moments. the day to night dissolve wasnt my favorite. way to stick with the story to get the conclusion. watch that ugly mic cord. - good pacing and nats, nice collection of sots to pull the story together. minimal use of aerials, well done.
