Years ago, artist Laila Gohar made an edible volcano that caught the eye of filmmaker Albert Moya. This year, they teamed up with other creatives around the world to make a film that artistically explores the creation of the volcano and Albert’s creative interpretation of it.

Dropbox Stories

This year, California Sunday Magazine partnered with Dropbox to push the limits of creativity across languages, continents, and time zones.

Together, we curated a list of over 25 creatives from around the world — food stylists, composers, photographers, illustrators, directors, and more — to highlight the three fundamentals of every creative process: collaboration, community, and communication.

From New York to Buenos Aires and beyond, the creatives used Dropbox Paper, a collaborative workspace, to brainstorm and gather momentum in real time — keystroke by keystroke — in one shared digital space. They shared moodboards, sounds, images, and music that would become the fabric of three new films.

When there are no limits except what we dare to think, we create the outrageous and the original. See what happens when 25 creatives from around the world come together to make something new.

Dropbox Paper helps make the brainstorming process much easier by having a shared space to communicated in real-time
