Seth's Blog: Direct and useful project feedback: "In my experience, there are three different ways to structure the project. Each leads to a very different feedback loop.
1. The goal of the team is to please you.
2. The goal of the team is to make a product that they love and are proud of building.
3. The goal of the team is to build a great product."
Actually I think Pixar is in #3. Their films are so often filled to the brim with amazing detail that you are sure that the whole team is adding and tweaking and doing their darndest to make the best film possible.
