The Nest is the bed of our parents. It is the place where we feel safe throughout life. However, when we are small and we need more of this security, we will give you minor and end up doing anything to escape him. When we reach adulthood we realize the importance of the nest. Then, and only then, we are ready to build our and thus restart the cycle.

NINHO is the wish to break free.

Like other fantastic movies that made us dream during our childhood and made what we are today as adults, NINHO tells the story of a boy named Miguel, a dreamer that lives alone in lost island in the middle of the sea with his grandfather.

During his childhood, Miguel is fascinated by the outside world. He dreams about a city that he can only see the lights from far away.

One day, Miguel and his grandpa have to leave the island towards the city and his childhood's dream is revealed. The true nature of the real world comes up. A world driven by addictions and by the power of the money. Miguel gets disappointed and he returns the island alone where he rebuilds his grandfather's house, like how it was in his childhood - this is NINHO (nest).

This story is based on a real world fact. Houses are getting destroyed in Algarve's small island of Ria Formosa, and the people that live there have to leave their, so considered, illegal houses.

NINHO is the wish to break free.
And the will of returning to our nest.

About the author

NINHO started as a personal project of João Nunes, who wrote this story because he was also a Miguel. A boy that had to watch the world that he imagined to be something else, like so many other children in that island. Today NINHO is the project of a young and energetic team that consists in João Vaz as director of photography, Beatriz Realista as art director, Filipa Silvestre and Carolina Gomes-Teixeira as executive producers, Laura Frederico as casting director, Tiago Galvão as sound director, João Filipe as sound track composer and the actors Leandro Morais, Eduardo Frazão, José Henrique Neto, Salvador Nery, Emanuel Arada, José Eduardo and many more.

Budget and due dates

Making a film is not always easy, at all. But we do it because is what we love. To bring this story to the real world we'll need to build a small fantasy city inside a warehouse. And to have life in it we need people in this city, and this people needs to be dressed likewise. All costumes will be designed by Gonçalo Páscoa. All this will take place during five days of shooting in the end of March. And we need your help to bring this scene to life! Although we will be shooting this film in some other places like in Lisbon and Algarve, we decided to do the crowd funding for this scene in particular, since it's the main core of the film. We already have some partners like the Lisbon and Algarve Film Commissions, from the city of Faro and the village of Moita. From the budget for the production of this film, we allocated 1500€ for this scene in particular, of which, 800€ for the construction of the scenario, 300€ for the confection of the costumes and 2400€ for the production logistics as well as food and transportation of the actors and the crew.

    Boa noite.
    -
    Goodnight

    Em primeiro lugar, queriamos aproveitar para agradecer novamente o seu contributo para a realização do nosso filme, Ninho.
    -
    First off, we would like to thank you again for having contribuited on our film, Ninho.

    Após muitas aventuras, muitos dias de rodagem entre Lisboa e Algarve e ainda mais dias de montagem de imagem e som, podemos anunciar que o filme está quase terminado!
    -
    After a lot of adventures, many days of shooting, and even more editing, we are pleased to anounce that the movie is almost finished.

    Estamos neste momento a rever todo o filme em pormenor, e, embora isso possa sempre demorar um pouco, podemo-nos atrever a dizer que teremos a versão final no início de 2016, mesmo a tempo de celebrarmos o ano novo com um filme cheio de sonhos e ambições de um futuro melhor.
    -
    We are making the last revisions of the entire movie, and, even though this could still take a while, we are safe to say that our film will premiere in the beggining of 2016, right on time to celebrate the new year with a film full of dreams and hopes of a brighter future.

    Gostavamos muito que aceitasse o nosso convite para estar presente na anteestreia do filme, mas como ainda não podemos avançar com uma data certa, deixamos só o convite, assim, na promessa de vos actualizarmos assim que possível.
    -
    We would be pleased if you could accept our invitation to be present in the premiere, but, since we still can't be sure about the date, we promisse to keep you posted about that.

    Hoje temos, no entanto, uma outra estreia, mais pequenina, mas não menos especial. É um pequeno teaser do Ninho, que vos mostra as primeiras imagens da cidade de fantasia que contruimos de propósito para o filme.
    -
    We have, however, another premiere for today, smaller, it's true, but nonetheless still important. It's the premiere of the new teaser of our film, but the first one to show images of the fantasy world we have built specially for the film.

    Até breve!
