Yeah I have seen Ratcatcher - loved it. We are definitely on the same wavelength with this! Will hopefully have something to send you after weekend x

Also thanks for the link to 'Never Let Me Go', I had kind of forgotten the film but I really see what you mean about the atmosphere. Hope everything is going well with your project and hopefully see you on 27th x
I love the image on your last blog post. I'm struck again by how much common ground there is between your project and mine. Great BBC feature too!
Thanks so much for your comment and for all your feedback yesterday. Your thoughts were really helpful and inspiring and I have been mulling it all over today. And yes, I would definitely be interested in a collaboration with Found and Lost. I'm looking forward to see your work soon. Lets keep in touch.
