1st State of Indecision — Christopher Smith –This was an ambitious project that we truly enjoyed. The photographer used ambient sound to great effect in almost every video. It made the judge wish they could be let loose in Indiana with our cameras. The project had a really nice sense of place in time. This being said the judges felt not a single of the videos wouldn’t have been served by a slightly tighter edit. If you find yourself retracing your steps, make the hard cut.
2nd Gary Celebrates— Christopher Smith — We felt the excitement and wish we could have been there. Not much more you can ask for from a multimedia piece.
3rd RoboCop — Christopher Smith — This piece rambled on a bit and may have benefited with not starting at the beginning, but backing into it. In the end, it was the thoroughness of the piece raising it into the top three.
