There's some sort of magic
that happens in any collaboration.
[Rajan] If you make films, if you make music,
you really become sensitive to how to read
the different groups that you're working with.
The best part of collaborating with someone
who you have a lot of love and mutual respect for
is that despite individual egos,
we're all working for a same goal.
And that's what's so great about working with Jihae
is because we try to bring different perspectives
to everything and then we try to crush it too.
[Jihae] Yeah we like putting holes in things.
We're really honest about it.
I'll tell Jihae, I'll be like,
Well I don't think you sang that song really well.
And she'll be like, Why can't you be nice about it?
[Rajan] You know, but it's great because she'll be like,
I don't really like those visuals that you created.
They don't say anything to me
and that makes me think, Well, yeah she's right.
When you really learn to collaborate with somebody else,
you are putting yourself up for a potentially
really remarkable experience because if you allow
everyone to bring their gifts into the project,
then it could be something it could never be without them.
[Rajan] Life is a collection of ingredients
and you bring these different ingredients together
and that's where the magic happens.
[Jihae] Right, and every ingredient counts.
Yeah and that's how relationships thrive,
life's about time. Quality time.
[Rajan] And sharing.
One person can be the spark but then
another one brings light to the fire.
