More than the sum of the parts.
Working in teams is the norm in video production, projects are rarely solo efforts. One of the most satisfying things in working collectively is collaborating in a creative process, and achieving a result that was more than any one of the individuals was capable of. A collaboration with a music producer and an animator friend was my first taste of a video and motion graphic collaboration. A singer-song writer, a collage and watercolour artist, an illustrator, a designer and an animator weighed in on this lively conference animation. The Edinburgh Startups film was a project that grew up out of friends, groups and businesses working together.
“Stop, collaborate and listen…” So wrote Vanilla Ice. But was he on to something?
