Collaborative Production?

I'm wondering about practical ways freelancers and the self/employed can collaborate, co-operate and share resources both practically and virtually. The demand for lean, mean flexible teams is even greater in a recession. So when logistics and personal situations/ambitions may separate us, how can we engender a collective spirit? How can we work towards a common commercial goal, make a profit, and remain friendly and professional enough to want to do it all over again - sometimes years later? An obvious example is in the film & tv industry where freelancers do this all the time. They are usually co-ordinated by a production manger, how does this translate to an increasingly digital domain where creatives and technicians often have their own client relationships to manage and protect? I have my own experiences drawn from both environments and I am interested in sharing them with you and hearing yours...
