The Life-Light project – Daan // This is my journey!

I always struggled to see who I really was, hiding myself behind a mask.
When my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer 2 years ago everything changed!
I had to learn and accept that it’s impossible to have everything under control.
I am allowed to do the things I dream of and it’s OK to make mistakes!
I am ready to discover myself! I am Daan and this is my journey!

The Life-Light project is a short film about creative challenges. Our motto “There is always more!” is a big part of our Life-Light project. We are not satisfied with mediocrity, we want to be superb! We are not afraid to say “I don’t know”, because this means we have something new to learn. We know we still have creative barriers, but we don’t let them hold us back. They drive us further, our vision is to make these barriers steps to grow as creative filmmakers/designers and human beings. We don’t believe that the boundaries you experience in your life are there to limit your possibilities, we believe boundaries are there to give you directions.

The Life-Light project – Jordi // This is my journey!

vimeo.com/54222829

The secret of real strength is often hidden in your greatest weakness.
Because I was born with a physical handicap I know a lot of limitations in my life. But I’ve learned to see these boundaries no longer as limitations but as steps to grow and lines I can cross. I don’t believe that the boundaries we experience in our lives are there to limit our possibilities, but I believe boundaries are there to give us directions or to motivate us. That’s why I hunger for real freedom, to be in a place where I will be truly free in everything I do and create. For each new step I will take, each boundary I’ll break. I will learn new things and discover a new freedom. I admit I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but I know I can only learn by making a move and acting on it! I am Jordi and this is my quest, this is my journey, this is my life!
