Synesthesia by Terri Timely

Not too long ago I mentioned Joanna Newsom’s The Sprout and the Bean and shortly after that I got an email from the video’s director, Ian Kibbey! He is a regular reader of this site and directs videos with his partner Corey Creasey, under the name Terri Timely. They just finished a little short called Synesthesia and it’s brilliant.
