Nick Moron WTLV, Jacksonville "Matthew Cleanup"Judges Comments
KB KSTP Matthew Clean Up 10 10 8 9 Nice transitions. I like the wide interview shots. Tons of nats. Nice work. Story moved along, had a steady pace. JH KSTP Matthew Clean Up 9 9 7 8 You were hindered by a reporter who offered slight generic sentences...but you delivered! The best thing about your story was focusing on a Character (The married couple). Good work! PT KSTP Matthew Clean Up 8 9 7 8 Very good pacing. Solid shots and nats. Good composition and sound. WG KSTP Matthew Clean Up 9 9 8 8 Great use of NAT sound.
Brandon Graves WVEC, Norfolk "The Linkhorn Janitor"Judges Comments
KB KSTP The Linkhorn Janitor 7 7 7 9 Nice use of the gopro, good sound, great technique. TP KSTP The Linkhorn Janitor 7 8 8 9 Nice work! Nice transitions, audio strong, nice use of GoPro! PT KSTP The Linkhorn Janitor 8 9 9 9 Great composition, pacing, and nats. Just the right amount of good GoPro shots. Excellent way to introduce that crappy file video by putting it in the computer monitor. JH KSTP The Linkhorn Janitor 6 8 8 7 This is a boardline feature story. That is why I scored it lower under content. Your craft is excellent. Not all stations would even do a story like this. Very clever use of a school monitor to introduce the 'file video'. Great work!
Ken Deyoe Time Warner Cable News, Albany NY "Holy Trinity Pride"Judges Comments
PT KSTP Holy Trinity Pride 8 8 8 8 Good composition. Nice pacing with good nats and bites. WG KSTP Holy Trinity Pride 9 8 9 8 Great Story. Nice use of NAT pops throughout. KB KSTP Holy Trinity Pride 8 6 8 7 Nice story, with good use of nats for transitions.I'm guessing that you didn't have a lot of time to shoot and edit this one, since it ended abruptly. NG KSTP Holy Trinity Pride 8 9 8 9 nice story...nice shots, nice use of nats, nice pace...going to be a little picky here but loose the first shot of the zoom to the cleats and go right into the bagging...overall very nice piece. JH KSTP Holy Trinity Pride 8 7 6 7 You do a nice job with your audio. I would like to see similiar effort with your video. I needed a better sense of space. Wide shot? Odd closing shot didn't feel connected to the rest of the story. Video of burned up locker room was great, but I needed more context of space. The reporter did a great job and helped carry some of the video.
