Devastating news

I have been debating with myself  for a while about the appropriateness of writing about this in here. The debate was closed once I considered how relevant this person was in the creation of this project (Scixel) and how I’m conducting my life today.

Juanjo Sáenz, my friend, has recently left us. A lot is going to be said about him and I can’t add anything more to it: it is all true. He gave me the opportunity to discover the research world and at some point, just as an accident or a side effect I got a thesis manuscript written and a PhD title. The amazing people I meet in those years and the fun I had, it’s all his fault. And also my job today, somehow that’s also his fault.

It is really sad because he left too soon leaving a trail of happier, wiser, and grieving people. Just to describe the magnitude of this trail, a common friend said: it is terrible that this happened during the Covid-19 situation. His funeral would had looked like a state funeral. And this is also true.

See you man.



A year ago I started working on this short film. I was wondering, what if people had superpowers, but still had to be somehow tied to the laws of physics? What if they were able to do amazing things, but still energy or momentum had to be conserved. That’s how Momentum was born: a story of a huge misunderstanding.

Hope you like it!
