I had a lovely phone call from Emma yesterday, one of the synaesthetic interviewees in the film. She had received the DVD of work in progress that I sent her and had really enjoyed it.

I'm so relieved that she thought that my interpretation of her synaesthetic experience was correct; the whole film hinges on its authenticity, but it is all filtered through my (non-synaesthetic) brain. She paid me the high compliment of saying that I had a very synaesthetic way of working, so I'm clearly absorbing more than I thought - synaesthesia by osmosis?!

The two images here are Emma's reaction to running water, one drawn and described by her and one a still from my animated version.
