The first high profile project I worked on as Stereographer (conveniently mis-credited as “3D Supervisor,”) this project came about by a fortuitous series of events. Tamer Mortada, managing director of Cairo’s famed Aroma Posthouse had found two partners to re-create the legendary stories of 1001 Arabian Nights: Aladdin, Ali Baba, Medusa, Sinbad, and many more, all set to the backdrop of Scheherazade’s nightly storytelling for Sharyar, the powerful king. The team’s dedication was phenomenal, and they had Aroma’s substantial VFX-muscle behind them; there was an extensive amount of CGI for the project.

I’m waiting to clear the rights to upload a 3D version of this, but for now, enjoy a low-res 2D version:
