It was a long-awaited meeting. John and I have been communicating and collaborating online for many years. It felt more like a reunion than a first meeting. We began our day with coffee and gifts. John presented me with an autographed copy of his and Bob Burg’s new book “Go-Givers Sell More”. I was humbled to see that these two great men had honoured me with an acknowledgement in the book. I’m still overwhelmed by this.
Anyway, it was a beautiful sunny day in New York City. Much too nice to work inside! So we walked up to Central Park and spent most of the day there, batting ideas back and forth about how to best serve stories through the medium of film.
The sunshine – and a saxophonist entertaining the crowds – must have been good for our creativity because we generated lots of interesting ideas for movies (honestly, we weren’t just working on our tans and eating ice-cream!)
Collaborating is definitely more fun than writing solo!
