Creative collaborations are a complex, yet common phenomenon. In this paper we introduce a model that describes the development of a creative outcome by a group, based on its efforts to structure the task through the exploration and adoption of concepts and artefacts. We use our model as a basis to analyse a collaborative filmmaking study. Through this, we show how the model is an effective tool for describing the actions of the group as its members work towards producing an outcome. We conclude that the model could be utilised as a tool for recognising patterns in creative collaborations, for understanding support needs, and for comparing instances of these tasks.
