If you give people the freedom to work the way they want…

Dropbox is built to support you — no matter what you make or how you make it. It’s why we’re focused on building simple ways to work from anywhere, with anyone, on any type of file. We believe that when you’re free to work how you want ideas flow more freely, work becomes a little more fun, and everyone creates more interesting things. Today we’re excited to share a film that celebrates that belief. In the spirit of working with anyone, it features work from a diverse group of designers, photographers, scientists, and programmers who helped bring this ambitious video concept to life. The film, directed by Johnny Kelly, contains original footage shot over five and a half weeks by 141 collaborators from many different corners of the world — all brought together using Dropbox. Among the many contributions, you may catch animator Marc Bouyer’s tumbling dinosaur, a rocket ship created by model maker Matthew Cooper, or a beautiful illustration from the team at Barber & Osgerby. Programmer and designer Marcin Ignac even went so far as to build and capture a JavaScript/WebGL visualization of the files in his own Dropbox. The end result is a peek into the heart and soul of Dropbox. Filmmakers, designers, educators, and engineers like the ones featured above are using Dropbox every day to create, collaborate, and share. No matter what you make or how you make it, we give you the freedom to work the way you want — so you can focus on doing your best work.
