Why did you get involved in this project?

I found the idea very interesting and wanted to be involved in this collaboration.

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

It helped me.

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

 I felt fine, I liked the mystery.

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

I tried to be more abstract.

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

I provided two set of texts and shot for two projects, at the time I had some time on hand that I could dedicate to the work, however that was cut short by work deadlines.
