I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Andreas Elifas about five random facts about himself, what inspired him to create Jumper Namibia . Plus his biggest lesson about failure. Check out my interview with Andreas Elifas below:
Loryn: What inspired you to create Jumper Namibia?
Andreas: In 2017, I attended a filming and editing workshop, where I learned how to visually communicate using the camera. After learning the skills, the idea to create short videos in First Person Perspective came about and later realized the use of a VR headset and cell phone to watch the videos i did in First Person Perspective, this allowed a viewer to truly gain the perspective of another person when they watched the video. After realizing the idea, i then started to provide a service for local businesses and professionals to market their products or services on First person Perspective.
Loryn: What is your favorite content to create?
Andreas: I enjoy doing video content with no dialogue, this way I get to focus more on visual storytelling and allows me to do away with working with a script. It's also easier for me to work with first time actors who might have a hard time remembering a script.
Loryn: What's a lesson you've learned from failure?
Andreas: I learned that one should not be too hard on them self when they fail at something, life is an everyday learning curve, every failure is a lesson learned. The things i failed in helped me become wiser got me to learn more. At the end of the day, how will you learn if you don't fail.
Loryn: What's an advice you have received, and actually put into practice ?
Andreas: The best advice i got and still practice is to keep track of my expenses. I also learned to separate my company money from my personal money. This is something i still struggle with tho, I have some friends and mentors who always remind me to be financially discipline.
Loryn: What's something not many people know about you?
Andreas: I can actually rap, i spend most of my time composing songs in my head but never produce them, i could create a whole album from the songs i create.
