Some hot things I did during a gap year.
In June 2011 I quitted my job in Spain's top digital agency Doubleyou for a gap year.
I was about to turn 30 and I wanted to push myself far from my comfort zone.
After travelling around the world for five months, I decided to approach award-winning feminist porn film-maker Erika Lust to suggest her a collaboration.
I was interested in exploring some experimental narratives and thought indie porn would have less decision-makers than commercial films. So, I teamed up with Erika's production house Lust Films and together we approached potential partners to launch an ambitious interactive porn film on augmented reality.
We failed. Perhaps the idea wasn't as good as we thought. Perhaps the market wasn't ready yet.
Since my gap year was about to end, I moved on and started freelancing.
Few months later, I provided strategic advise for Erika's new release, which was partly an evolution of one of our ideas: A crowd-sourced platform that allows people submit their fantasies for Erika to turn them into short porn films.
X-Confessions has become since then one of the most acclaimed projects in Europe's porn industry.
