There are many things that could be said to defend this project. However we think that what guides us to do this film is the enormous will to create a memorable cinematographic experience that can touch the audience in a transcendental way.
This is what OOBE is. It’s more than a film. It’s a story about what’s unknown to us; it’s an original approach to what is inside of each of us, more than a biological way in a spiritual way.
OOBE is a journey that takes us to sensory paraphernalia, but what we want more than everything is to tell the history of Gui. Gui is still searching for an exit from the junkyard. We want Gui to find the exit. We want Gui to emerge, to find it’s way back to the surface and find himself, in whatever way possible.
We are willing to fight for this project! We have the team willing to help Gui to find his way out. We are passionate about what we do and OOBE is the best example of that. Once again, it’s more than a movie or a cinematic experience, it’s a life experience that we want to share!
Help us also to help Gui!

- Jorge Pereira - “I’m a humble 22 years old boy who dreams about the world as any other boy my age would dream. A large number of things made me get this far, and like for many other people, the decision of what to do for the rest of my life wasn’t easy. I’m here because for me, there is nothing like light. Light is as fascinating as it is quick and without it we couldn’t have pictures. To shape it to our taste it’s the biggest challenge that I’ve ever had and it’s a challenge I hope I can pursue until the end of my life.”
- Rita Batista - "The Art for me started with a WC of a club for a short-film also directed by Joana Maria Sousa. Then, I didn’t know where I was getting myself into but I jumped right in and discovered my love for the Art Department."
