What if you watch a film and whenever you pause it, you face a painting? This idea inspired Reza Dolatabadi to make Khoda. Over 6000 paintings were painstakingly produced during two years to create a five minutes film that would meet high personal standards. Khoda is a psychological thriller; a student project which was seen as a ‘mission impossible’ by many people but eventually proved possible!
Director and art director: Reza Dolatabadi
Written by Reza Dolatabadi & Mark Szalos Farkas
Animation by Adam Thomson
Music by Hamed Mafakheri

Everybody who knows me knows I am not into cute. Young rabits? Perfect in a stew with red cabbage and mashed potatoes! But this Samsung ad did even me go all Aaaaahhhwwww. 2349 ways to use this phone other than calling. It's no iPhone, but they made an effort! And I know for sure cute little fluffy furry things sell as good as sex.
