Working with these collaborators — 10 in total including those from Shanghai, Toronto and London — was an ambitious exercise in itself, requiring precise communication and a cross-pollination of ideas and techniques to ensure a cohesive outcome. And like all ambitious projects, things go wrong, often in their final moments: A collaborator drops out, the edit gets changed on the fly, computers freeze. But the theme of Semi Permanent this year is creative tension as inspiration, so perhaps this was a self-fulfilling prophecy on the projects attached to it. “The collaborators I worked with really kept it in the back of their minds to ensure their section stayed true to the full vision of the titles” she reflects when comparing her initial vision to the final product. “What they created wasn't difficult to put together because they knew it was a small piece of a larger project. So even if it was a bit of a waiting game to see what they came up with, it's turned out to be a very cohesive title sequence."
