Award-winning Hoorakhsh Studios was founded in 2005 to make some young people’s dreams come true in the animation world. We create animation with joy and passion, from developing ideas to post-production; that’s why we have received numerous achievements, including five appearances at Annecy Festival Selections and being listed in the Academy Awards 2020.
Along with producing original animations, a significant portion of the studio’s capacity is allocated to international series and movies with that we partner as co-producer or service providers.
Although animation is the core of our studio, we are also engaged in designing comic books, merchandising, animation training, and publishing specialized books as an entertainment company.
We gain and share experience.
We are making a notable effort to be efficient actors in the field of independent cinematic animations at the global level. Our goal is to promote the Iranian culture, and, by bestowing a great deal of significant to the quality of our works.
By attracting and training talents, as well as relying on group behavior and perseverance, we try to take productive steps to create animations with global standards. The belief is that we can gain a place among the leading countries in the field of animation production, distributing and selling our art on a global scale with the lowest cost and highest quality. We surprise our audience with a different flavor than the usual animated movies and provide them with new images and content. Hoorakhsh’s goal in producing animation is not only to produce products for sale, but to embark on a romantic journey on the path of experience and cognition. We believe in ourselves, and we shall prove this belief in the global arena.
The term Hoorakhsh was coined by 6th century AH and 12th century AD philosopher and mystic Shahab al-Din Yahya Suhrawardi, known as Sheikh Ishraq. Suhrawardi, in two eponymous prayers, contemplates about the sanctity of divine light. In his view, Hoorakhsh is the light that man seeks and attains after understanding himself, and, in turn, his deity, and upon reaching the most elevated individual status.
From time immemorial, the sky has always been a haven for human desires. Human beings for eons gazed, and will gaze, upon the bright sky (Hoorakhsh), whispering their dreams. Perhaps, humans are the most capable living creatures with concealed wings, which are embodied in their gift that is the power of thought. Therefore, humans can take flight and achieve the unachievable.
