The Sirene


More than 30 minutes of animation. Utilized motion capture technology and editing to fit the 2D animation artistic style. We were able to save a significant portion of the time and budget for the film’s producers. 1980, Abadan. The capital of the Iranian oil industry is resisting an Iraqi siege. Fourteen-year-old Omid has braved the siege and stayed in the city with his grandfather, waiting for his elder brother to return from the front line. Along with Omid, a gallery of unusual characters have all remained in the city for their own reasons, and each resists in his or her own way. But the noose is tightening as Omid tries to save his loved ones, by embarking them on an abandoned boat he finds in Abadan’s port, which will become his ark.
