RLA I Started Smashing Windows 6 6 6 6 NICE SUBTLE EDITING OF NATS, GOOD STORYTELLING DP KGTV I Started Smashing Windows 8 8 7 8 I really liked this story. You had great a moment with them thanking the guy rock solid on your choice of shots. The only thing was there was a shot where the dog was in the car after seeing him out of it then getting back in the car later in the story. AAG KGTV I Started Smashing Windows 8 8 7 7 Nice work. Like the pace of the story and the editing. Good storytelling.

RLA For Justice Goes Mobile 6 6 6 4 "GREAT STUFF, STORY SEEMED BUILT OUT OF ORDER. " DP KGTV For Justice Goes Mobile 7 7 7 7 I really like how you and the reporter built the track in with the nats of the chanting. watchout for camera shakes (59 seconds). lock it down. with the line of blocking traffic i see a car moving. thats little disjointed but at this point I'm reaching for stuff to critique. also once the bishop got arrested I didn't need to see his interview anymore. Overall great job! AAG KGTV For Justice Goes Mobile 8 8 8 8 "Liked the NAT's a lot, also the close shots. There where some details that need to be taken care off but overall really good job! " GST KGTV For Justice Goes Mobile 7 7 7 7 Nicely shot. Great opening sequence. I loved the tight shot of preacher saying "unacceptable", and use of nats. I only feel like the story dragged on a bit, losing some momentum. The solid camera work got a little sloppy at times toward the end. I think the story may have been stronger if resolved sooner. GC-KGTV For Justice Goes Mobile 7 7 7 8 I like your use of nat sound pops. Good storytelling
Chris Weaver WGHP, High Point "Lumberton Rescue"Judges Comments
DP KGTV Lumberton Rescue 7 7 6 7 watch out for the framing with the shotgun mic(I'm sure your lower third covered it) Great emotional sound with the lady who was soaking wet. Was it a live shot? kind of weird having a lot of the sound as a two shot. Good job hiding the lav but I did see the wire a couple of times. AAG KGTV Lumberton Rescue 5 6 6 5 I didn't like the reporter standing the hole time with the soaking lady. I liked some of the shots of the river. Goog job "GST KGTV " Lumberton Rescue 6 6 6 6 GC-KGTV Lumberton Rescue 7 6 6 7 I like that you started with nat sound. the soundbites were emotional. I would have left the reporter out of those two shots and focused on the emotional faces and get more close ups. Good story telling took there and I felt the desparation of the people missing loved ones. Good job getting to the right place and getting these people to talk to you.
