#Onedaycollaboration & #snapcollab and #quantumqollaboration with Paul Rudy
Plant the Seeds and Watch Them Grow (Springing Up, New Growth), March 14, 2018
A one day quantum collaboration with Paul Rudy. We tuned in from remote locations at the same time today to create, Paul with music and myself with animation. When we each finished our piece, Paul sent his audio over and I dropped it into my video.
Together, each individual piece can create something new together...and then again new with the viewer...
No post production adjustments in timing were made. I titled my animation, Plant the Seeds and Watch Them Grow... and then I received Paul's audio titled, Springing Up, New Growth. So there you have it.
Allowing and reclaiming self, March 9
Created in a day by forging a mutual "field" between artists to connect in non-local time and space. "Getting rid of old stuff clears out space for allowing the new to effortlessly flow in," Paul Rudy.
"Sometimes we must go back and reclaim the pieces of ourselves we lost along the way. Sometimes we don’t," Lisa Marie Evans

"I've been exploring new forms of animation and themes of life experience. For this one, I asked Sarah for an image of hers that could work with the theme "connection." She sent me the image below saying, "It’s a black hole surrounded by cosmic dust. We are all made of cosmic dust. If that's not connection, I don't know what is?" Which was perfect because I've worked with this notion before in a similar fashion."
"I uploaded looping animation to instagram (@lisamariefilm) where Paul saw the animation and felt drawn to make sound for it. He created a 2-minute piece of music. Because the original animation was only 10 seconds, this challenged me to again create something new to work with his piece."
"Challenges. I'll tell you what. Keep on creating." Lisa Marie Evans
Surrender, February 22, 2018
"Paul Rudy and I created another #onedaycollaboration today. Make sure to turn on the audio. The synchronicity of the title is rather perfect. Without speaking (and actually never truly meeting), he sent me the audio file titled "Surrender" just as I was thinking of ways to animate themes of surrender and letting go. What you're seeing and hearing was meant to be. And all created within a day. Surrender." Lisa Marie Evans Facebook post, Feburary 22, 2018
Dark Night of the Soul, February 20, 2018
"I saw a video on Instragram, with these blinking eyes surrounded by darkness. They were longing and felt trapped, but not defeated. I turned on the sound and there was none. But I heard sound, in my head. So I emailed Lisa Marie Evans to ask if I could make some sound for it. It was like jumping off a collaborative cliff, with no guarantees she would say yes, no promise that anything would come of it, and no safety net other than trusting my own creative instincts. Dark Night of the soul came as our first #onedaycollaboration. And I'm in love with it." Paul Rudy
