Maryam Mohajer

MA work

Imagine your universe, country, town or bedroom with all the creatures in it. Imagine they would do absolutely anything you ask them to do, no questions asked... now what would you ask them to do?

I've always enjoyed telling stories. I'm passionate about movement and character's behaviour.

And Life Went On is an animation based on my own memories of childhood. It happens in Iran during the Iran-Iraq war.

I'm happy as long as I'm animating.
