The world first animation was imprinted on a pot in Shahr-e Sukhteh (ancient Iran) 5,000 years ago. With such artistic background, Iran is not extensively engaged in the animation industry. However, with its young and highly motivated human resources, Iran's animation industry has been showing accelerating progress in the field of animation productions in recent years. Currently, this industry, leading among the creative industries and cultural technologies of Iran, is growing owing to the presence of dozens of related Iranian studios and the significant volume of produced animation works. This video introduce the capabilities of Animation industry.
