    That played out pretty much as I felt it should upon reading the script originally.
    Maybe hold off on the reveal of Amy's mind; as John and Amy leave we see John's mind watching them leave. We then hear Amy's Mind "Look at what you've done", John's Mind looks across, cut to Amy's Mind.
    Great work on the music cues.

    Great job Dan + team!
    Love the lighting for the kiss.
    Was a little unsure about the jaunty music at the start, but the abrupt cut off works really well.

    I'm with Adolf on this one, it just works. Well done. Wouldn't change to much there.

    Great work as always. I could've even watched it go longer. Well done.

    I have to say, i loved the male actor :) he has lots of energy and i kept wanting to look at him which is very important in a film. There a few things in the editing..but im not sure if it's done that way due to lack of footage or not. It's ok the way it is.. for isntance timecode 0:27 to 0:28...it can be cut maybe a bit earlier, we keep staying on an empty frame. (well it's a good film, hard to find stuff so im really going into details..) good luck! i enjoyed watching it a lot.
