Misc: Dalai Lama quote

I am kind of transcendental lately...:P

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity:

“Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Misc: Why success always starts with failure


Misc: Steve Jobs quote

From  the Stanford graduation speech in June 2005.

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Misc: 2011 Wage survey


Photography: Series

Lately I have been putting photographs that were sharing a common theme together in kind of a triptic. I will try to upload some of them every now and then.


Personal: 15th Aniversary reel

15 years ago, on September 1996 I got my first 3D gig. I have always been a bit freak about keeping my demo reel updated and that helped me to keep images from pretty much all the projects that I have been involved in. I felt like gathering the most representative works and put them all into a kind of conmmemorative demo reel.
To be honest I had never realized the amount of time and effort that I  put on personal projects throughout all this years until I started editing this reel. I could say that almost 50% of the images belong to personal projects done on my spare time, among them two short films and a tv animated series project.

Needless to say that nobody should ever apply to a job position with a reel like this one as you want to put just your better works and keep it under 3 minutes.

On the other hand I have the feeling that I am getting to the end of a stage of my life so I thought it was nice to wrap it up putting all that journey together into a video. I don´t really know where I am heading but that´s also kind of exciting and my life has been always like that anyway.
