Bon Iver- Come Talk To Me (Peter Gabriel)

Music you can feel.
Its spring and the color is coming back to the south.
Gone are the days of brown and grays and our eyes open wide to take in the light of the new warm days.

Go buy this split 7" now.

How Pixar Fosters Collective Creativity

This article was first posted in The Harvard Business Review. It was a major influence on the creative processes we adapted at Bright City Studios. It is inspiring to see how Pixar has structured everything from their office space to their management style to foster a collaborative creative environment.

The process you take is just as important as what you produce at the outcome, because the process is what will ensure continued growth and maturity as an artist. Inspiration is not blind luck, it is something that is nurtured and developed and the team at Pixar has managed to continuously produce excellent and innovative work raising the bar of animation artistry and heart-felt storytelling.
 It is worth studying the process they have developed to do what they do so well.

How can you restructure areas of your life to adopt new methods of creative collaboration?
