I watch Chernobyl and what I see is leaders in fear. A world constructed around lies that must be protected with more lies, with force, with blame and abuse. All to avoid responsibility. To avoid the courage it takes to let go of your armours and admit the truth. Because truth is only seen as … Continue reading Chernobyl and patriarchy
This year's Pride in London has been the busiest ever, reportedly. Parties on streets, big stages, small stages, and a never-ending parade. I wonder if we could do better than feeling proud. When you look at David Hawkins's Map of Consciousness you see that the state of Pride is just under the level of Courage, … Continue reading LGBT+ pride or courage?
Thank you for serving me until now, I now release you, old emotions, and feed you to the fire so that it transmutes you into new, more positive aspects.
View of the youth hostel Pic de l'Àliga, where I was called "Mister" for the first time. I took this picture from the ridge on the way to Puigmal peak, in the valley of Núria, in 2010. Part of my ego died the first time a child called me "Mister". I froze. The language the … Continue reading A kid called me “Mister”
Last week I visited my hometown, near Barcelona. On Saturday night I went to the bar, to attend the poetry festival that was taking place. The atmosphere grabbed my attention. This environment I had been away from for 6 years. While waiting for my friend, I stood there observing every detail. The gestures of people … Continue reading I was a celebrity

Somebody who kept the spirits high, who united the group along the hardships of the mission. That person was the cook, Adolf Lindstrom. That makes me think of the role … Continue reading The need for entertainment
One day I'll look back to these lines and I will remember where I was when I wrote them. We humans are like that, we give meaning to every single thing in our lives. And so we create stories around meaning. And we tell them. And we share them with others for all sorts of … Continue reading Hello everybody
No, you're not the only one wondering where to get the best music to use legally in your videos. Notice I highlight legally, because you can't use the last album you bought in iTunes. Not without breaking a few rules and being taken down by YouTube and Facebook. And we don't want that. https://youtu.be/WBoXJrdMc3M Did you … Continue reading Where do I get great music for my videos?
Did I tell you I'm starting an online video editing course? https://vimeo.com/225863693 Did you know that 4x as many people prefer to watch a video instead of reading about your product? And that we remember 10% of what we read but 50% of what we see and hear? Video is not the future of the … Continue reading Make Video Magic
I went nuts when I couldn't recover my film projects. Thank goodness I still kept a copy in a hard drive. Archiving is a sensitive thing. And if you work in film it can be an expensive thing. So a long ago I chose optical media. DVDs, originally. Blu-rays, currently. When I am pretty sure I have finished … Continue reading Currupt FCPX libraries in Blu-ray
