The journey begins...
We started as a small company in 2002, making animations and commercials. Our first animated short movie Iranian Chat, written and directed by Amir Saharkhiz, won the Special Jury Award in Tehran International Animation Festival and the Golden Prize for Best Animation in Iranian Cinema Academy, earning two more nominations as Best Script and Best Experimental movie.
Entering the Visual Effects Industry
ROASHANA Studios, won the award for Best Visual Effects, at the Iranian Cinema Academy Awards for its artistic achievement in creating a mysterious and melancholic environment on Leila’s Dream, a horror movie directed by Mehrdad Mirfallah.
Exploring new horizons
Within just two years after ROASHANA Studios moved to a new location and expanded its services, the studio started to become a favorite between the new wave Iranian directors. Asghar Farhadi’s About Elly was among the first movies that utilized ROASHANA’s visual effects services and was a major hit, winning Berlin International Film Festival’s Silver Bear and many more.
A Big Milestone in TV Productions
Mokhtarnameh, directed by Davood Mirbaghery, is the biggest epic/history television series ever produced in Asia continent and ROASHANA Studios was responsible for providing the visual effects which consisted of more than 4000 shots and 800 minutes. Mokhtarnameh is still a favorite between audiences and gets some screening from time to time.
Iran's first Oscar
It was 4:00 AM on February 26, 2012, in Iran, but no one was asleep! It was a very historic moment in Iran when A Separation directed by Asghar Farhadi won the first Academy Award for Iran in the Best Foreign Language Film category. ROASHANA Studios was responsible for providing the visual effects shots of the movie which was also nominated for Best Screenplay.
Greetings to the Angels
Creating mischievous mice that occupy the whole city, a flying messenger with a motorcycle, a dead grandpa who is haunting the whole family and the good and evil angels in Greetings to the Angels, earned ROASHANA Studios a Crystal Simorgh and Golden Butterfly award in Best Visual Effects category.
For the second consecutive year, ROASHANA Studios won the Golden Butterfly Award for Best Artistic Achievement in Isfahan Children Film Festival. Time Travel, directed by Amir Shahab Razavian, tells the story of a boy who to change his future, needs to change his father’s past.
The Lovers' Wind
Polishing the Gem...
ROASHANA Studios was responsible for the digital restoration of The Lovers’ Wind, directed by Albert Lamorisse. After a time consuming, frame-accurate process of refining the details and removing the artifacts in this masterpiece, the whole movie passed a precise color grading process which restored the masterpiece to its original state.
