Why did you get involved in this project?
I know Midi, I like making work and hey, lots of time on hands! Also, form of project was interesting and not overly stressful.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
Helped - like Allen Ginsberg once said, First thought, best thought. Go for it!
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
Interesting! Curious to see what someone else thought of and did with my images or text - so fascinating how many different approaches there can be to same material.
If you worked on several videos, what kept you coming back for more and how many did you do?
I tried one of each (not sound though) text, shooting, editing.
