New Animation from Iran by Moin Samadi and Mehdi Alibeygi

These two pieces of Iranian animation caught me by surprise because they are so stylistically different from other recent animation I’ve seen coming out of Iran. The first is a commercial for Lina Luke snack food directed by Moin Samadi. It has been accepted into this year’s Annecy Animation Festival:

The next is an energetic and funny hand-drawn piece called Evolution by Mehdi Alibeygi.
