EPISODE 160 – Cheap Anita

On today’s episode, we chat about Collaboration-vs-Competition.  As an artist, is the industry better suited for collaboration, competition or both?  We open with comparing Google Home to Facebook’s new Portal and Amazon’s Show.  It seems companies often fall in the same track, and seemingly copy each other.  Is this healthy competition or just a copycat scheme to the top, whoever can get there first?

Does the same happen in a studio environment?  What causes employees and artists to want to collaborate vs compete, share their work and push others or hide and protect their work?

We really break down each component of what makes for good collaboration, both in a large team, studio environment but also in small teams or even just pairs.  Competition can be both destructive and beneficial, we break down what creates a healthy competition and how to maintain it.
