Nick Moron WTLV - Jacksonville "Bye, Bye Garbage"Judges Comments
CD- WOAI Bye Bye Garbage 8 9 9 9 Your use of nats for a transition between the garbage truck to the boy was great it went perfectly and brings the viewer into these garbage men's biggest fan. I also liked the deep depth your interviews had but they could use a light on the subject. You were also creative in your shot choice, using rack focuses, tight shots of the cans and the men working as well as the kid following the truck. You did an excellent job keep it up. KC - WOAI Bye Bye Garbage 8 9 9 9 Great story! Great use of nats and variety of shots. It was well planned out. Nice job transitioning between the trucks and the boy. Having tose extra mic'ed sound was key to bring the viewer to the scene. Great work!! "DB- WOAI " Bye Bye Garbage 10 9 9 9 "Great story! Love the NATS. Great attention to detail.

KC - WOAI Fighting Back 10 9 8 8 Excellent story! You have a great opening and closing shot. Great story that hides the surprise. Well shot and edited with great pacing. Good work overall DB- WOAI Fighting Back 10 9 8 8 Great story. I like the opening shots. Would have like to see more details with him in the chair. I like the fact that you build up to his illness. Love the sequence of him getting in the car. Really clean nats. Great job overall and you really showed how the illness effects the body. CD - WOAI Fighting Back 9 9 8 8 This was a great story I loved your sequencing and use of nats to move the story along from him sitting in his chair to getting the gym. Your nats were also clean and flowed great from sot to sot and your shot choices were excellent throught out the pkg. Great job keep up the great editing and shooting. JM-WOAI Fighting Back 10 8 7 8 Great Story. Your pacing keeps the story moving so I never realized I was watching a 3 minute piece. Your sequencing is also very good. We didn't spend a lot of time on it, but we went from his house to his car to the YMCA without teleporting which was nice. Your Nats were also very smooth and well placed. Keep up what you're doing.

Also you capture great moments. Good work!!! CD - WOAI Bill Bike Man Clark 8 9 9 9 Really great job with this story. You had great nats that flowed naturally and helped with the pacing of the story and also great shot choices. Keep up the good work. DB - WOAI Bill Bike Man Clark 8 9 10 10 Great attention to detail. I can watch this pkg with my eyes closed due to great NATS. Like the opening shot and ending shot. Like that you kept the bike parts in the foreground of the interviews. Great transition from shed to church. Keep up the good work! JM - WOAI Bill Bike Man Clark 8 8 9 9 Really nice story. Your nats are very precise and they don't feel out of place. You also had lots of tight shots that gave it texture. I really liked the shots of the door handle and the allen wrenches because of the nats that are paired with it. Also nice job with going outside and shooting through the window. Love the effort and creativity. I would work on smoothing out your audio just a tad as I could hear a few of your edits. At :53, 1:19, 1:22, I can hear the reporter track drop off and the SOT pick up. Great work!

Great attention to detail. Really love the tight shots. Great story and Great job overall! CD - WOAI One Stitch at a Time 9 9 9 8 Great use of tight shots to move the story along and really show how much work they are doing. I also really enjoyed your use of nats with spool shaking and the pouring in of the beads it help break up your sots and really get me into the story. Your main interview was lit beautifully but i think you should have moved to avoid the slight branch or given us a different angle. You did a fantastic job keep it up. JM - WOAI One Stitch at a Time 9 9 9 8 Lots of nice tight shots that give the story texture. Your nats also help give the story texture and keep the pacing moving right along. It never felt like it was dragging. Your depth of field in your interview was also very good. Keep it up!
