About Porta dos Fundos

[Translated from Portuguese] Porta dos Fundos (Back Door) is a creative collective that produces audiovisual content geared for web TV quality and editorial freedom of the Internet. Conceived by Antonio Tabet, Fabio Porchat Gregorio Duvivier, Ian SBF and John Vincent de Castro, Back Door's YouTube channel releases two skits weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays at 11am. Among our many achievements, and in less than a year of existence, Back Door became the Brazilian channel on the Internet to reach the milestone of 1 million subscribers faster and won the prize of the APCA (São Paulo Association of Art Critics) for "Best TV Humor Program." Now the Back Door stays open, showing what living room entertainment does not.
