Jessica's feature was a story of a specific locale with obvious universal connections about the personal side of changing economies. That attracted me and I wanted to know how this particular work force would adapt...or not.
The stories were intimate, real, personal but some of the audio was a bit hissy and muddy. I liked the report but think it could be edited substantially. Some nat sound could have enhanced the progression while creating a very real location in the theater of my mind.
Jessica, having lived there, brought a unique perspective to the story without undermining the report or overshadowing the stories of the workers.
