Why did you get involved in this project?
Because it was part of the Knowledge Media Design specialization I am pursuing at the UofT together with my Grad studies. Moreover, it is a very interesting project. I have a BA degree as well and it is always good to be in contact with the art industry.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
It actually helped. I could set a schedule and follow it through.
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
It is fine, we are interconnected, and reactions as a response from our interactions cannot be predicted all the time anyway. The surprise element made it even more interesting.
Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?
It certainly made me more conscious about the flow of my work. It needed to be understandable to continue preserving the original line of thought.
If you worked on several videos, what kept you coming back for more and how many did you do?
I participated in two videos, one as the imaging provider and the other as a text/content provider.
