Sébastien Foucan: Our relationship with fear

'If you don't overcome, you won't become.'

Sébastien Foucan


So much of the creative process is about fighting through the fear.


Fighting through fear that you don't have any talent. Fear that you can't do it.

Fear that you'll fail. Fear that no one will like or appreciate what you create.


I had the pleasure of seeing the founder of freerunning, Sébastien Foucan speaking at TedX Ealing in 2012.


He talked about his experience working on the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale - specifically the iconic scene where he free jumps across a construction site in Madagascar with James Bond in hot pursuit.


But hearing him speak, I discovered something quite amazing and surprising about Sébastien.

I won't spoil it. You'll just have to watch.


And if you're more into Madonna than James Bond, jump in here (yes, that is Sébastien - in between Her Madgesty singing).
