Sometimes if you’re lucky, you get asked to do a really big project. If the project is a good stretch or you need to pay the bills, then of course you have to say yes. Hopefully you know how to do it, but if you don’t…then you need to learn the necessary skills — fast. This is the story of taking on giant, expensive projects with hard deadlines and many unrelated skills. How to persuade collaborators to be on your side, motivated to work their asses off and love you anyway.

  14. 14. Dear Reddit, I’m a person without a huge amount of friends, since I’m shy and I enjoy staying at home playing videogames and watching movies rather than going out. My problem is, I want to start a project, but I’m really not great with math, and I don’t love programming. My focus is art and design, besides story and ideas in general. So, my question is, where do you find people to work with you? How do you trust someone that much to help you with a project that has no budget or payment guarantee?
