The Quiet Year - 2024

As we step into the fresh canvas of 2024, I find myself at an intriguing crossroads. My whole career, the digital buzz of social media has been a constant backdrop to both my personal and professional life. It’s been a platform for connection, a stage for sharing, and a tool for growth. Yet, there comes a time for change, for introspection, and for recalibrating one’s focus. This year, I am choosing to embrace a quieter existence away from the social media limelight. When most people are committing to posting more online this year, I’m committing to posting less.

This decision wasn’t arrived at hastily. It stems from a deep-seated desire to engage in projects that are more aligned with a ‘low time preference’ — endeavors that require patience, long-term dedication, and offer more meaningful outcomes. This article, for instance, is a reflection of that shift. It’s a space where I can share, in-depth and without the constraints of character limits or fleeting trends, the projects and ideas that I am passionate about.

One might wonder, what does stepping back from social media entail for a professional in the bustling world of media production? For me, it’s about redirecting my energy towards projects that resonate on a more valuable level. It’s about delving deeper into the nuances of storytelling, exploring the intricacies of international film production, and nurturing ideas that have the potential to leave a lasting impact.

In this quieter year, my focus will be on nurturing Campo Libre’s creative endeavors, steering Filmkik towards innovative frontiers, and ensuring Colectivo continues to redefine the landscape of event production. These projects are not just business ventures; they are extensions of my creative spirit and platforms for meaningful storytelling.

Moreover, this blog serves as a window into this journey. Here, I share insights into producing international shoots, the art of brand storytelling, the nuances of raising funds for films, and the intricacies of creating strategic media campaigns. It’s not just about the end product; it’s about the journey, the challenges, the learnings, and the triumphs.

For those curious about my foray into supporting Bitcoin companies, this space also provides updates and reflections. The world of tech is dynamic and ever-evolving, and being part of this journey is exhilarating.

Lastly, a word on work-life balance — a concept I intend to embrace fully this year. Stepping back from the constant demands of social media is a step towards a more balanced, mindful, and enriching life. It’s about quality over quantity, depth over breadth, and meaningful engagement over transient interactions.

As I navigate this more quiet year, I invite you to join me on this journey.
