Pharell Speech at Midem 2010
World famous uber-producer/designer/businessman/trendsetter Pharrell Williams did the keynote speech at MIDEM Music conference in Cannes, France on Saturday. He spoke with Cornerstone (co)CEO and Fader Magazine (co)founder Rob Stone. He covered topics ranging from how artists can better engage their fans, how important it is to have a GOOD supportive team behind you, and how important it is to leave your neighborhood and see the world.
I had it playing on my tv while i edited photos from our Spring/Summer 2010 shoot and let me say it is hella inspirational to hear him speak on so many topics that people in the creative industry frequently discuss. I'll probably have it playing in the background while doing my "homework" a couple more times just to reinforce some of the things he said. A good vid.
"If you have a great idea...you should go for it...dont wait until your 40,50 years old to get involved and get in the trenches. You gotta do it now"
