Recently our Leader and Co-Founder Ryan Wines took the TEDx stage, speaking candidly in front a packed house of more than 700 at TEDxConcordiaUPortland, sharing his ideas about on the grind-it-out nature of the Creative Industry.
Who knew there's a 30% annual turnover rate in the Creative Industry? Apparently, it's second only to the Hospitality & Tourism.
Why do creatives get so burnt out so often? And how do we address this issue?
Wines articulately paints the landscape of the Creative Industry, offering ideas on fostering an innovative, healthy culture that supports creatives and focuses on their core human needs. At 14:23, he boils everything down to his new take on The Golden Rule. Check out the talk for yourself.
Looking for a song to meet the energy of your film? We may just have the band for you.
The music of The Soft White Sixties come in bursts of light, beaming flashes that burn hot and fierce. Each song meets at the crossroads of soul, R&B and straight up rock 'n' roll. This music is just cool, plain and simple.
Continuing along, their song "I Ain't Your Mother" glides along playfully and youthful energy. This piece is filled with classic guitar and brings the flare of the sixties without all of the cheesy tapestry. This instrumental is something vintage and modern at the same time, bringing in a vibe that is unique and timeless.
We'll cap it off with "You Are Gold". This empowering number introduces piano into the mix in anthemic style. You don't need vocals to feel how inspiring this composition is. This piece ascends with a hopeful message and never misses a beat.
