MEMORIES by Otomo, Morimoto & Okamura

Memories is an animated anthology conformed by three short films by directors Koji Morimoto, Tensai Okamura and Katsuhiro Otomo. This is the first Japanese DVD edition released in 1999 that came in a Laser Disc size box with the original cinema release booklet. Its original price was around 100€ but someone was selling it like new for just 15€ shipping included. So I added another Katsuhiro Otomo related item to my never ending Otomo stuff collection.

SHORT | Le Déjeuner




Mexico | 2010 | 5 min | Color | 16:9 | French

Starring
Constance Aupetit | Giulia Manini | Juliette Charron
Photographed & edited by
Ioannes Busca
Music by
Jean Jacques Goldman ‘Je te donne’
Ⓒ1989 Sony Music Entertainment (France)
Shot in Mexico City, October 2010



An unexpected improvised performance by Constance, Giulia and Juliette. There is no better time to share with your friends than breakfast , especially when studying abroad.

Shot in Mexico City for the CAMPUS MOVIE FEST competition that took place on October 2010. There were some rules to follow but when editing, the intention was to maintain the veracity of the moment before anything else. This caused the film to be disqualified for making use of music protected by copyright.

Le Déjeuner is the short I have presented to the contest that Campus Movie Fest is organising in UNAM and other universities in Mexico City this days. Juliette, Constance and Giulia have been so generous of letting me record their private conversations while having breakfast in Alpina 11 where we all live  with other people from around the world, most of us interchange students. -Ioannnes

Kindle time!

Today I ordered the Amazon Kindle. My first eBook reader. I believe 140€ it's a reasonably price to finally decide to buy one. I have been looking forward to this day since two years ago when Amazon released it's first Kindle but the prices then were much more prohibitive for a penniless student like me. It's going to be great to have a device to read without carrying books around. The 3rd generation Kindle is available in Amazon: US / ES / JP

iMac G3 to iPhone4



Last June 7th, Steve Jobs presented the iPhone 4. Take a look at this comparison with the imac G3 a product by the same company, from a decade ago. That makes me think on the first computer we ever had at home.

CONTEST | STOY 2010

Rodrigo Delso and Javi Argota were developing some toys for the first Sustainable Toy competition in ETSAM Architecture School. The brief was to create a toy for children in emergency situations. A real prototype of the toy and a short video had to be presented. I joined them to make the videos and we end up making three different proposals.

First proposal: Teclas y Letras (keys and letters)



Rodrigo made this board game made out of  old re-painted computer keyboards. The game consists in forming words with the letters you pick up from the sack. Letters get attached in the board so even if the earth shakes, the letters remain in their place.


Second proposal: Dodecahedron



Argota developed a puzzle that children could build, followings the chronology of their actions throughout the day with a rope. Sleeping, eating, playing etc. 


Third proposal: Con la comida no se juega (Food is not for playing)



The last idea was just to make an eatable toy.

LAB | Begigorri a.k.a MMOT in Actua UPM contest 2010




My brother Aaron started developing a device capable of making touch screens on the go. We called it BEGIGORRI. I joined him in the process of developing the outside case and generating more ideas around. Ricardo Santonja told us we should present it to this years UPM Program for the creation of technology-based companies. So we did, we called the project MMOT and we were awarded with a Diploma. Aaron was not in Madrid to receive the award so I edited a photo to include him.

Acer x110 proyector








Today I bought our first projector. I have been looking for a projector for a while and thinking on an HDready or full HD ones but finally I thought that almost everything I'm going to watch is going to be standard resolution DVDs so let's try with a more economic one. This Acer x110 costs 300€ it has a resolution of 800x600pixels. That's everything we can afford by now. Jumping from a small TV to a projector is a great experience. I'mm going to re watch a lot of movies.

Fix your Windows




We have been discussing about Cuba this days in architecture school. Architectural Association School students from London went there last month and have now come to Madrid Architecture School. We worked together here for one week with the data they brought from their travel to La Habana. Our team has concluded that what Cubans really need is to create a new operating system for themselves.

We have call the solution: "Fix your Windows" and we have created a book called 'El precioso libro no preciso' 'The Precious Imprecise Book'. It's a collection of tips and tools that all together and by upcoming updates created by the users themselves, should become a tool that shows how to fix real windows of an actual house.

The project itself is a metaphor of how by knowledge and communication things can start to get fixed. We choose windows because of their architectonic condition as an element that communicates the inside with the outside and also because we realize many windows in La Habana were old and damaged. We believe that the only way to fix problems, is to help people create their own systems, so they can not only solve their actual problems but they can continue finding solutions for future problems and the get more independent every day.

Our team was formed by Stavros Papavassiliou (AA), Ioannes Busca (ETSAM), Sofia Sclopis (ETSAM/Milan) and Agnete Plauborg Lorentzen (ETSAM/Copenhagen). Agnete did a great video that showcases our book project:

WAX: CALIFORNIA directed by Spike Jonze



This is one of my favourites Spike Jonze music videos. Released on February 8, 1995. It is the first video included in Jonze's The work of Directors series DVD . Today as I was watching it I thought how long would it take if played at normal speed, so I open it up on Premiere and after some minutes I believe I got the result: 1000X faster. Here the resulting 15 seconds.

Upgrade to Windows 7



This is what my laptop desktop looked like until today. On July 22, 2009 Windows 7 was released but I have been waiting for my brother to test it before upgrading, because my last experience with upgrading to a new Windows was pretty bad.

My actual laptop, an HP6710b, originally came with Windows Vista installed on it, but just after a week I downgrade to XP, the previous version. This time however the guys in Redmond seem to have done a good work, and after my brothers approval this Christmas, I jumped to the new operating system.

I took the opportunity to I upgraded the Hard Drive too, from  500GB standard one to a 160GB SSD. I made a backup of all my files and get ready to restart again, this time with the power of the 64 bits technology. Everything boots faster now.
