Dolby "Silent" Animated Short
Dolby was losing its presence and needed to reinforce its relationship to the movies. We worked with Academy Award winning Moonbot Studios and Oscar-nominated sound designer Steve Boeddeker to create an animated short film called “Silent”. It told Dolby’s story: how sound technology has transformed movie history and celebrates how storytellers, inventors, and technology work together to create cinema magic.
“Silent” achieved its goal of reinforcing Dolby’s endemic role within Hollywood, both to industry and consumer audiences. As a sign of this success, it was the first brand piece to ever take part of an Oscars event, it debuted as Netflix’s first ever-animated branded content piece and was featured by Samsung and Amazon.
The film gained praise from the media as it was featured as Vimeo’s ‘Short of the Week’ and also on USA Today’s ‘What to Watch’ list. It was nominated for an Annie for Best Animated Short Subject and 5 Emmys with 2 wins. Silent continues to show at film festivals, trade events, and in Dolby Atmos theaters worldwide. All without any paid media.
