Interview with Hollywood Director Daniel Kaufman

I always want to know how the big guys are doing it. How they get where they are.
I’m still searching for the path that gets me the closest to where I want to be when I grow up 🙂
So why not ask someone who has done it already?

In this interview, Danny talks about how he got started and how he got into the high-end world of commercial film production.
He shares with us what to pay attention to if you want to become a leader, and the “career killers” to avoid
so that you don’t screw up your career path halfway through.

The biggest revelation I had is when he talks about if you need to be “born” or if you can “learn” to become a director.
His answer surprised me a bit and I think he is spot on.

    Daniel’s wisdom:

    Hang around the industry & absorb (pay your dues), develop a vision (after seeing those of others), innovate, take charge. Oh, & lose the ego.

    Easy as pie!

    thnx!

    I’m sure if you don’t do any of those things the chance of arriving there one day is greatly decreased.
