Admissions Officer - Filmmaker, Maastricht University
Born and raised in Maastricht. Working fulltime at the UNU-MERIT/Maastricht School of Governance institute as an admission officer. Next to my fulltime job I’m discovering the world of documentary-/filmmaking which my presentation at Pecha Kucha Vol. 36 will be about. When people trust you with their stories, it’s the obligation of the filmmaker to tell it the right way. To treat the story/the people with respect and to stay true to your creativity and your passion of making films.
It maybe sounds easy to do right? Though for various reasons, I’m finding out that some of these things are not.
Passion over Ego, please!

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.
