One of the Academy Award nominees for Best Animated Feature Film is the independent , relatively low-budget 2D film "Persepolis".
The clips which follow are a 3 Part behind-the-scenes look inside a contemporary animation studio, during the making-of "Persepolis".
The film has been released in Europe and is currently in limited release in North America through Sony Classics . If it goes on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature (as some are predicting) then it will surely receive wider theatrical release , but will probably be available on DVD in the near future . I haven't seen it yet, but the trailers and the subject matter have me intrigued .
See the film's official website for more information and trailers , or look up "Persepolis" on YouTube and you'll find lots of clips and interviews with the directors .
