THE ARTIST

MULTIMEDIA ARTIST:

shahrokh_200pxl

Born in Iran in 1966, Shahrokh Nael displayed an affinity for the visual arts and moving images from an early age – exploring a range of creative disciplines in order to better understand the expressive potential that underpins each of them.

He obtained a BA in Visual Arts and Culture (with a specialisation in Moving Images/Video Installation) from Salford University in 1999, and set up Orangeattic.com in 2001 to showcase his ever-expanding portfolio of commercial work – currently spanning an array of print, digital and film media sources.

Having harboured a passion for the cinematic medium since childhood – and particularly the innovative efforts of the Hong Kong studios active throughout his youth – Shahrokh later sought to develop his skills in this particular field of expertise. He established the Orangeattic.tv website in 2011 to exhibit his upcoming series of short films, and then in 2012 completed a Masters Degree in Filmmaking from Manchester Metropolitan University – graduating with a distinction. This extensive exploration of film production has not only allowed Shahrokh to broaden his creative horizons, but has infused his still creations with an energy and dynamism that sets them apart from the work of his contemporaries.

In 2016 Shahrokh was awarded and won The best Action & Thriller category of Hollywood International Moving Picture Film Festival and The Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. His experimental animation work titled “Obsolescence” was also selected and short listed by LABF London Film Festival.

Today Shahrokh works with those clients he feels are best served by his particular artistic vision – seeking to harness his diverse skill-set and eclectic life experience in order to produce superior creative work, without any additional nonsense.

 

MARTIAL ARTIST

In addition to his production and creative commitments, Shahrokh has remained a dedicated martial arts practitioner – having first been inspired by the ground-breaking Chinese movies he revered as a boy. To date he has obtained a 3 rd degree black belt in Shaolin Kung fu and established himself as a popular instructor – passing on the valuable insights he feels he has gained from his training to another generation of students. As part of his research and practices, he has established Jiu Fa Quan (Nine Methods Fist) currently taught in Manchester.

 

ILLUSION OF PHYSICAL COMBAT

Shahrokh’s research and practices are also focused on Hong Kong films and Cinema. In 2015 as an associate lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, Shahrokh has helped and taught undergrad BA film students on understanding of a fight scene in a structured Narrative. Shahrokh will be running a similar workshops for some of UK Universities in  2017 / 2018 academic year.
