Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos visited the School: “We are looking for local, authentic stories”

The CEO of Netflix, Ted Sarandos, made a special trip to Jerusalem for a conversation and meeting with students at the renowned Sam Spiegel Film and Television School. The visit included a talk in front of students with actress Shira Haas. Ted Sarandos said in conversation with Shira Hass: “All you need is community, and if we learned anything tonight it is that the world needs you. Your projects are going to change the world, it might take a year, it might take ten. But it’s going to happen. That’s why we are so proud of this affiliation, the first of its kind”.

When asked “what advice would you give your 21-year-old self?” Sarandos replied: “Most people would say follow your passion. This might sound counter-intuitive, but the best advice I have heard is to do what you are good at, and the passion will follow."
