Persian Magic
Art Group



"When We Clash" is a documentary TV Series produced by the famous German company Deutsche Welle. Filmed in 12 countries, each episode follows a young protagonist who is struggling for his beliefs.

Persian Magic Art Group produced the Iran episode of this amazing TV series in several locations of Tehran. We handled all the pre-production tasks, including researching, obtaining filming permits, securing locations, arrangements, filming, transcribing and translating all dialogues into English so that the post production can be done smoothly in Berlin.

After the successful collaboration with Windfall Films and Science Channel on making the first episode of "Unearthed: Season 9", Discovery channel asked us to return to the ancient site of Persepolis for producing an extended version of that film. Adding a second archeologist, producing more 3D reconstructions and taking the camera into the locations never seen before, we traveled back to Persepolis for new adventures!

We handled all the pre-production tasks and we successfully filmed all the necessary scenes in different ancient sites in Fars Province.

"Every shining moment has an ending..."

Based on a poem by Omar Khayyam, "Falldown"  is a one-shot short film about a girl who dials a number to talk about the important decision she just made... .

Produced by Hesam Dehghani, this is the first film written and directed by Ghazal Ghorbani, who has been working with Persian Magic as an actress and assistant director in several projects.

Archaeologists have unique access to Persepolis and other rare sites. They'll start up new excavations with new technology, giving us a chance to learn about its amazing story.

We produced one full episode of this exciting TV series (season 9 / episode 1) for Windfall Films and Science Channel in Iran. We filmed in Iran's most famous historic sites such as Persepolis, Pasargadae and Naqsh e Rostam and sent the footage to the edit room in London for post production. The film was premiered on Discovery Channel and Science TV on May 2, 2021.

After wrapping this project successfully, Discovery Channel were so happy about the footage that they immediately offered us to produce an extended version of the film, A 90 minute special, called Lost Empire of Persia.
