[mellow music]
00:04
There's some sort of magic
00:06
that happens in any collaboration.
00:09
[Rajan] If you make films, if you make music,
00:11
you really become sensitive to how to read
00:15
the different groups that you're working with.
00:18
The best part of collaborating with someone
00:20
who you have a lot of love and mutual respect for
00:23
is that despite individual egos,
00:27
we're all working for a same goal.
00:30
And that's what's so great about working with Jihae
00:32
is because we try to bring different perspectives
00:37
to everything and then we try to crush it too.
00:39
[Jihae] Yeah we like putting holes in things.
00:40
We're really honest about it.
00:43
I'll tell Jihae, I'll be like,
00:44
"Well I don't think you sang that song really well."
00:47
And she'll be like, "Why can't you be nice about it?"
00:48
What?
00:50
[laughs]
00:52
[Rajan] You know, but it's great because she'll be like,
00:54
"I don't really like those visuals that you created."
00:57
They don't say anything to me
00:59
and that makes me think, "Well, yeah she's right."
01:03
When you really learn to collaborate with somebody else,
01:06
you are putting yourself up for a potentially
01:10
really remarkable experience because if you allow
01:13
everyone to bring their gifts into the project,
01:16
then it could be something it could never be without them.
01:20
[Rajan] Life is a collection of ingredients
01:22
and you bring these different ingredients together
01:25
and that's where the magic happens.
01:27
[Jihae] Right, and every ingredient counts.
01:29
Yeah and that's how relationships thrive,
01:31
life's about time. Quality time.
01:33
[Rajan] And sharing.
01:36
One person can be the spark but then
01:37
another one brings light to the fire.
