pkh; kxas Fort Rousseau 7 7 8 7 I liked the transitions, you especially nailed the climb down the tunnel. You also did a great job of keeping the active interview steady. I would have liked to see some tighter shots of your interview with the vet, you had a nice portrait shot near the end - you get props for not breaking the face line with the nose. A nice slow meltin away dissolve would have been easier to follow visually on your transition from modern day footage to the b&w photos, the film burn/light leak wasn't needed at all and made the effect of jumping through time less noticeable. Good story. ro-kxas Fort Rousseau 7 8 8 8 Great Job, Good effort throughout. I loved how you let the story breathe. Some of your transitions werent necessary. The film Burn? The light stuff was good. Didnt like the wipe transitiong into your closing shot. Keep it simple sometimes, but keep up the effort on creativity. mri-kxas Fort Rousseau 8 8 9 9 well told story .. super interesting .. you transitioned seamlessly from one subject to the next and had some fun litttle surprises in there. your wipe at the end was a little weird .. and film burn transitions didn't seem like the right use where you had them. i would like to see more of a morph look as you go from today to the past .. overall though GREAT STORY

ro-kxas Laughter Yoga 8 7 6 6 l loved your opening sequence. Liked the reveal. Needed some action reaction. People walking by, wondering what the hell they are doing. You had some great little moments throughout. Needed better shot variety, move around more. shoot from high and low, back up get closer. Challenge yourself more, Still a memorable story. Great job pkh; kxas Laughter Yoga 6 7 7 7 Funny stuff. I liked the characters. It wasn't bad. I would have liked to see some people walking near the park, outsiders, reacting to the craziness, but you get what you get. Nice open. mri-kxas Laughter Yoga 8 8 8 8 love your opening sequence .. perfect fit .. i admit .. this made me laugh .. and ill be looking to see if anyone is doing laughing yoga in dallas ! would like to see more variety .. you have a park so use it. and challenge yourself to a better close shot.

ro-kxas A Special Homecoming Court 6 7 8 8 Clean story all the way through. Only critique on technique would be the short desolves going into the pics. I think you did good with what you had. It was just hard to relate to your character. mri-kxas A Special Homecoming Court 7 7 7 9 tech sound .. nice use of gameday nats to lead to special moment. couldn't really connect to our main character. pkh; kxas A Special Homecoming Court 6 7 6 7 Solid fundamentals; I like the marching band nat prelude to halftime; I couldn't connect to your character; Mom's sound never put us in her daughter's shoes, that makes it tough for people to relate.
