Creativity Inc. is a guide for those chasing freshness, and the very first all-access journey to Pixar Animation’s core, with conferences and brainstorming sessions where some of the most famous movies in history were produced. It is, at heart, a book on imagination but, as Ed Catmull, co-founder and chairman of Pixar, says, it is also an illustration of the thoughts that I think really matters. Pixar has ruled the animation landscape for almost twenty years, making such iconic movies as the franchise of Toy Story, Finding Nemo or The Incredibles, which have been breaking box office records and winning thirty Academy Awards. Pixar animations are in many respects an educational lesson on what creativity actually can be. Catmull exposes here in this book the principles and methods that made Pixar so highly revered.

Psychological science supports what we feel in our hearts: if we work for the pure pleasure of it, we are at our most imaginative and creative. You can ruin your creativity by relying on extrinsic encouragement such as money, popularity, or other incentives. When you’re not enthusiastic about the challenge before you, it’s difficult to do your best work, regardless of what benefits it may offer. Working for love is nice, but you can’t overlook the benefits because you’re a talented professional: you need cash to live your life and support your ideas. You may not want to be popular, but you need a decent reputation in your professional network. Read Motivation for Creative People if you are concerned about thriving in your creative career and being faithful to your inspiration.
