VAC 11 Judge Review:
The story was actually a really nice idea, but I thought it wasn’t executed that well. It was pretty dragged out, which I think made it weak and kind of boring. I think an inner-narrative from the accused at the beginning explaining how he got into his situation would have been nice; to really exemplify how he felt being his first time in court. In terms of acting, there could have been a little more variation between the accused and the judge. The judge’s vocal inflections also seemed to bleed in to the prosecutor’s voice a couple of times as well, but good witness voice that was very much different from everyone else’s. When the witness was tearing up the jury, a couple of screams would have made that clear. The mixing needed a little bit of work as your voice was distorting when you yelled or got loud. But really, it was a great idea with a good foundation of characters, it just needed more work on its script in order to feel not as awkward and more work on the voices as to have more consistency. Nice work!
