Why did you get involved in this project?

With Covid-19 going on along with quarantine, this project is very time appropriate for me to deeply understand other people who I do not know and how the society has changed due to this pandemic.

Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?

It is helping. Having a schedule as for when the work is due allows me to take time to truly understand the last person’s intentions and to add my own thoughts to the project.

How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?

For me, it is a ground-breaking way of collaboration. This way of creating video projects gives me a lot of freedom, allowing my own idea to flow. I like this way of working on projects.

Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?

Yes, it did. Before this project, I tended to follow other people’s thoughts and be creative above it. It is hard nowadays to have my own ideas collaborating with others. The massive freedom that was allowed in this project was awesome.

If you worked on several videos, what kept you coming back for more and how many did you do?

The freedom of creativity and the fresh idea of how this project was passed along were the main reasons I want to do more and more.
