Caravan teamed up with Leadercast and Pixar to form an introduction for Ed Catmull’s keynote talks on his NY Times best selling book ‘Creativity Inc.’. We traveled to the Bay Area & LA to interview the top directors working at Pixar and Disney Animation Studios.
Although the film was originally created for the Leadercast event- Ed Catmull and the ‘Creativity Inc.’ team ended up using the piece as an opener on the remainder of his book tour in North America.
Here are what others in the creative industry have had to say about Ed:
“Many have attempted to formulate and categorize inspiration and creativity. What Ed Catmull shares instead is his astute experience that creativity isn’t strictly a well of ideas, but an alchemy of people. In Creativity, Inc. Ed reveals, with commonsense specificity and honesty, examples of how not to get in your own way and how to realize a creative coalescence of art, business, and innovation.” —George Lucas
“This is the best book ever written on what it takes to build a creative organization. It is the best because Catmull’s wisdom, modesty, and self-awareness fill every page. He shows how Pixar’s greatness results from connecting the specific little things they do (mostly things that anyone can do in any organization) to the big goal that drives everyone in the company: making films that make them feel proud of one another.” —Robert I. Sutton, Stanford professor and author of The No A**hole Rule and co-author of Scaling Up Excellence
