As filmmakers and people curious about how collaboration works for different people, we talk to a lot of interesting people.
Rather than wait for the right project to come along, we want to share these conversations with you and introduce you to the idea or person that will make your work and life better.

Whether you’re doing it consciously or not, what you spend your time on is a huge indicator of both who you are, and what you value.
And what you end up creating.
Our latest collaborator, Elise, treats time with a reverence that we seldom see.
Elise is a mixed-media artist. Her gorgeous and haunting creations are meticulously made, partly by cutting intricate geometric designs into paper with a utility knife.

Which is exactly why she loves it. And exactly why she feels she’s learned so much from it.
We talked with Elise about:
Cultivating a good relationship with time
Getting into a creative flow

This is a highly specialized field. Jer works with some of the biggest projects and names in the industry. We are not that, but maybe you are or could use some insight into how a data scientist works and thinks.
We talked about:
How we should approach data (hint: the secret is in the word actionable)
Why Jer values collaborators aren't just different than him but complementary
What a successful project looks like from the first meeting.
