Kicking off our 3 part speaker series is Brazilian born, Cleveland raised, filmmaker Filipe DeAndrade. He is known for his passion for wildlife and freely admits he is addicted to adventure. In 2015, Filipe won National Geographic’s Wild to Inspire short film competition at the Sun Valley Film Festival and is a 20 time NY Emmy Award Winner as producer and photographer. He is currently producing the WILD YouTube show Untamed for National Geographic.
Filipe DeAndrade, a filmmaker who grew up as an undocumented immigrant in the United States, talks about the push and pull between passion and achieving personal or professional objectives. He connects the jaguars and sharks of Costa Rica to the greatest motivating force in the world. “Fear,” he says, “is there to prepare you for success.”
