Residents hang out in the commons area of the bunkhouse in Gillette, Wyo. The bunkhouse has 17 rooms, with some rooms with two people in them.

Judges’ comments for the category

First, Bunkhouse offers a glimpse of the residents showing some emotion but comes disjointed with the roofing demolition. Would have been nice to connect with owner somewhere with residents prior to just showing him on the roof. Second,the lawn mower veteran had a nice flow to it with a variety of angles. Third, the teacher package has a slight story flow but lacked the one shot with the plane in motion or returning to the crowd.
