      Venkat, great opening shot! I found myself immersed in the story. There were a lot of things left not said and unexplained, this made it hold my attention for the nearly seven minutes. I am still trying to sort out in my mind the symbolism of the train track shot- person on a journey or contemplating suicide or ?. Keep shooting.

      Well done! Just like the title of the thread it was a train wreck you couldn’t turn away from but the work was great. Miss Swann did very well.

      Only thing I really caught out of the corner of my eye was a color shift, like you didn’t correct a clip to match on the bleachers scene at 3:09. That jumped out at me. Doesn’t really matter but its a fine touch I would have attempted to fix. Just food for thought.

      Filming was well done – Watch your framing, particularly in the mirror shots (too much room on the right, not enough on the left). Using Kevin’s tracks was a good idea but sometimes the music overpowered the dialog – watch your levels and maybe look for some background music that is softer while keeping the emotion and more suited to the dialog.

      Overall, very nicely done.
