Why did you get involved in this project?
I got involved because Midi asked me to and since I’ve been making slideshow videos on the side, it wasn’t a totally new medium for me.
Did the one week turn-around for the work help or hinder your creativity?
The one week turn-around definitely helped the creative process.
How did you feel about working on a project where you didn’t know who you were collaborating with?
It felt strange but good to be collaborating with someone I didn’t know. I liked not being in control and was happy to trust the collective creative process.
Has being involved in the project changed your thoughts on creativity?
Not really but I would definitely do this type of project again.
