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.

I use Dropbox as my library, uploading material to share with fellow collaborators, other musicians and directors all over the world
It is as if we are all working on the same computer. Dropbox Paper is an intrinsic part of my workflow. Manuel Barenboim
