“My number one mission is to create stories that shift culture, disrupt conventional thought, and truly inspire the world. Michael is one of those rare talents that always delivers the most impactful stories, done in extremely original and elevated ways. What he’s built at OBB couldn’t be more aligned with my own ethos and beliefs and what we’ve been building at Falkon since day one. My experience working closely with Kfir and the OBB team in general in the past revealed this powerful alignment between us and the results were world class storytelling and an extremely rewarding and fulfilling process along the way. I’m inspired to be teaming up with them and repeating those results on many projects into the future,” said Deboree.

Ratner added, “Reteaming with Dex is exciting as we’re always looking to add further best in class partners to bring original, bold stories to life. As we continue to grow our creative ecosystem, we’re committed to using our platform and investing our resources into working alongside and supporting deeply talented individuals as it allows us to impact more people. Providing access to our team of experienced storytellers, in addition to our studio and production capabilities, we’re able to work together to create content that connects with our audiences.”
