Dolby’s short film ‘Silent’ is the beautiful animated film designed to showcase Dolby’s partnership.
Dolby worked with Moonbot Studios on the short. You’ve seen their work in the Oscar-winning The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore and more recently in the fantastical Chipotle ‘Scarecrow’ spot. The film actually stars the Morris character as one-half of a struggling team of street performers who eventually discover a machine that takes them through a history of sound on film.
Silent was directed by Moonbot founder Brandon Oldenburg and creative director Limbert Fabian. Steve Boeddeker was the film’s sound editor (he is nominated for an Oscar this year for the sound editing of All Is Lost). John Hunter created the music.
