Moonbot Produces New Short for Dolby: Silent


Dolby has recently joined forces with Oscar-winning Moonbot Studios in order to produce a new animated story about the roles of picture and sound in movie entertainment. Titled “Silent,” the short debuted at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony last February 15, 2014.

“By working with Moonbot, by creating a film, it really is the perfect complement of our technology with the best of storytellers,” says Bob Borchers, Dolby’s chief marketing officer.

The short focuses on a struggling pair of street performers, Morris – who does the pictures, and a young girl who plays music on the keyboard. A rainstorm drives the pair into an abandoned theatre, where they find a magical contraption that leads them through an adventure of sight and sound. The adventure takes them through a virtual history of film and its genres, from silent movies to horror films, children’s stories, and thrillers.
