I love this. I think that the point of much of what we do as story tellers is to illuminate the world and what happens in it. But is this dramatization of the damage of a tornado too much? Is it dramatic enough? Or, does this ‘hit the point home’?
I think its amazingly powerful and don’t have a problem with it at all. As a matter of fact, I commend Andrew Winchell for a job well done. I think I am most moved by the pink walls in, what was once a little girls room, and the Stainless Steel refrigerator turned over. Such a modern day symbol of “look at us, we’ve achieved” (I think the Stainless Steel thing is soo overdone) and yet it is just toppled over in an instant.
Tornados, to me as someone who has grown up in CA, are the most terrifying of natural disasters.
