Theme

Most great stories are about the journey, not the destination. Imagine you find yourself on a train trying to make your way back home. But then unexpectedly, you fall in love with another person who happens to be sharing the same journey as you. That is what this show is all about. From a design standpoint, you have two very broad subjects to work with: "Romance" and "Trains". Additionally, you will get to work with three fantastic pieces of source music! I love this show because it is musically interesting but also provides endless visual and effect possibilities.
