Passion over Ego, please!

PRESENTED ON JUN 19, 2018
IN MAASTRICHT @ VOL 36

Certain events in life may lead you to find your true passion. But what happens once you are a filmmaker? Do you decline an offer because you do not believe in the project? Do you say no to a project because it’s not in line with your passion even though it may be a good offer or something that may boost your ego? Daniël Beckers explains why we need to protect true passion.

APPLAUD THIS!
