I like to build things. I've been working on projects for as long as I can remember. In fact, I cannot remember a time when I was only working on one project. This is not to say that I am not consistent. One of those projects ended up lasting for 6 years and culminated with the sale of a company. The thing is, when it started, it was just one of many things I was working on and it slowly took precedence as it grew.
I also like music. One artist that has always resonated with me beyond the music is RAC (Remix Artists Collective). It is more than the music itself, it is the concept. RAC consistently releases cohesive albums through inconsistent cross-genre collaborations. While the main producer behind RAC remains the same, the artists that he forms tracks around constantly changes. Have a listen to one of my favorite songs by RAC featuring the artist Penguin Prison.
To a frequent listener, the song is clearly RAC and it sounds audibly consistent with the rest of the album Strangers. However, Penguin Prison brings a distinct tone, cadence, and sound to the track that would otherwise be inaccessible to the creator.
So, here is my intention: I would like to create a Product Artists Collective or PAC
The organization is to provide structure to an otherwise unstructured multitude of "side hustles".
The idea is simple. There is only so much time available to create and build. There is a desire to constantly work with different interesting and talented people. There is a way to remove the cumbersome administrative tasks that always suck up the initial weeks or months of a project before the building even begins. PAC structures all of that.
PAC dedicates 6-month cycles to each project. Every project is a separate sub-entity of PAC that has it's equity even split between the board members assigned to that project. Two of the board members are constant (@Packtrick Allen and Myself). Any number of additional board members can be added on a project by project basis as needed to create something awesome. Each project, like a movie, is meant to have a beginning, middle, and end.
Maybe January 2018 for project #1? More to come...
