My name is Massoud Soheili, 24 years old, from Iran.
I am an Assistant director and Indie Author in the Iranian cinema field.
I have received Bachelor degree in Law studies, at one of the best Iranian universities ( Ferdowsi University of Mashhad ).
Although my background studies are quite different from the cinema field area, but, in order to occupy my life with my permanent passion, Cinema and Theater.
I am interested in traveling and knowing different cultures and people
from various countries. I love getting inspiration from cultures different to mine, also for filming. I am an open-minded and friendly person, interested in international aspects of living and intercultural relations.
I have been working in Cinema a lot since my childhood, when my enthusiasm for cinema started at all. My uncle (Saeed Soheili) was a famous filmmaker,
as a child I would be lend his camera and make short amateur films -
What an amazing experience it was!
I had worked with other youth filmmakers as an Assistant director, Actor and Sound recorder. But I prospered mostly in assistant directing and soon become known as an expert Assistant director and Program manager –
I had also worked it in more than 10 TV and Cinema projects.
I also had directed one professional short film ('The car blows the horn just for women', 2010) that won a few awards. It is available on a DVD.
I had directed and produced a backstage documentary report for one of the most famous Iranian movies (Marriage in extra time, 2009)
I also had written one feature Screenplay and a few Scripts for Iranian short films.
I also have some acting experience, editing (video clips), authoring and translating reviews in professional cinema journals and newspapers.
I am employed by The Film Company named "Simiya Film", Mashhad.
