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 for a super-ambitious arty film/augmented reality experiment.
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.
