BS KGTV Call From God 4 7 9 8 GREAT opening montage in rhythm with the bells! Loved it. And I loved the way you said he found God in his cell phone. Drew me in. Great job editing it all together. You definitely found a character with this guy. SR KGTV Call From God 7 8 8 8 Great character and great use of nats. Short PKG which is good, flows great. Nice tight shots and good wide shots. Job well done. Only thing would be the last set of quick shots at the end of the pkg, felt forced. Great job! person you interviewed was great, made the story better. SF KGTV Call From God 7 9 9 8 Nice job. I liked your beginning. Nice work under deadline. Nice shot variety and use of foreground and depth. Good job moving around the room. Would have made a great In Depth story but you did a good job under deadline.

BS KGTV She's A Beautiful Person 10 10 10 10 I LOVE THIS STORY. It tugged at my heart strings and made me say "Wow." Way to slowly reveal the special pieces. Great shooting, I know it's hard when you don't have much b-roll to work with. Simple, you didn't over-complicate it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You made me feel something. SR KGTV She's A Beautiful Person 6 8 6 7 Well shot, simple edits and you kept the subject from jumping the axis. Good storytelling and the story moved quickly. Shots were great too. Would have liked to have heard from the birthday girl but dont know what the stiuation was (maybe you did and she wasnt good interview?). SF KGTV She's A Beautiful Person 7 9 8 8 Nicely done in 4 hours. A nice little story and good teamwork. I do think the end was a little flat… didn’t really have that tied up feeling, but it was a nice little moment.

"BS KGTV " Memorial Day in Arlington 4 9 9 9 Very well shot. Loved that you found three people with different stories. Loved the shot of the woman crying by the grave, very emotional shot. Not the most original story, but you found a way to make it pop. SR KGTV Memorial Day in Arlington 7 9 8 9 Its hard to do these stories different and make it worth something, but you did. Thank your reporter for writting to your video. You guys both worked well together. Shots were great not a fan of dissolves but it works well with the story and the pauses between tracks. The people you interviewed were great. SF KGTV Memorial Day in Arlington 7 9 9 8 Some very nice photography here. I liked your use of light on many of the shots. I think an insert shot of the commanders name on the grave marker could have allowed you to avoid the dissolve. Overall nice little story. Your reporter also did a nice job.

BS KGTV Remembering 911 4 6 6 3 I lked the way you wove sound, nats, singing, testimony together. These things can be boring to shoot, but you did a good job keeping it moving. Good nat piece. SR KGTV Remembering 911 2 5 7 7 Solid natural sound piece, would have liked less stage sound and more people there reacting to people talking on stage. Good use of natural sound, hearing the sound of the bell then seeing it. Would have like to have seen you work the crowd for that person that would have made this story pop. Shots were good, wondering if there was more people there showing emotion? SF KGTV Remembering 911 5 5 6 6 Nice little nat pak. I liked the pacing of it. I think some non podium sound could have helped. I also think the audio had some hiss in it at times. You had some really nice tights but I never really got an idea of how wide this scene was. I never had that WS to show me the scale of the event or location.
