I Had To Quit School To Follow My Passion-Socrates Sarfo [Video]

Ghana’s Socrates Sarfo, a veteran filmmaker, said he could not pursue his education because he wanted to follow his passion of becoming a filmmaker.

In an exclusive interview with Attractive Mustapha, the filmmaker stated, “I left school because I wanted to follow my passion, I was going to be an Auto Mechanic in a technical school, but I was later convinced it wasn’t my passion because I wasn’t technically inclined.

He stated that the decision of his father to enrol him in that area was influenced by the fact that he had a cousin in the Auto mechanics who happens to be a lecturer.

Also, Socrates at the time loved drawing so his father felt he should go to the technical school to polish his drawing skills.

According to him, he just attended school to know that it was a technical school and he couldn’t learn anything about cars for the whole four years he was in the technical school of Mercedes Benz.

Casting his mind back to when he was in primary school, he recalled how he used the literature books he was reading during those days to plan shows in his community at that prime age.

“I picked up the story and showed it to the children in my area at night, and that’s where the excitement came from,” he said.

He noted for more than 30 years in filmmaking that he did not regret continuing his education because he was able to rely on his passion by learning to be successful on his own.

“What will I do at university? What was the job I was supposed to do? You don’t have to go to university to learn how to make a film, I don’t need a credential to shoot a film, you don’t need a certificate to be good, you need to be wise to be successful, Everyone I’ve worked with I don’t have a certificate to test, “he emphasized.
