Exploring 5,000 years of art, design and culture, Epic Iran shines a light on one of the greatest historic civilisations, its journey into the 21st century and its monumental artistic achievements, which remain unknown to many.

The audio is heavily sound design lead and features a core tribal drum rhythm that drives the pace of the powerful events and battle scenes. A variety of horn type sounds and instruments can be heard at the introduction of the film; along with authentic vocals with an eastern Persian aesthetic.

It was important to reference as close as possible, the correct sounds and instrumentation from the relevant historical period and geographic location. The sounds of battle complete and enhance the realism of the film, bringing one of the most famous illustrated manuscripts of the Shahnameh, the national epic of Greater Iran, into an animated short trailer.
