The art and craft of creating a short film for the big screen or the small one is for the most part a collaborative process. There are some people that create great works on their own, but in most cases it involves a crew that brings it all together. In the animated short film “Silent” for Dolby Laboratories, I guarantee there was an fairly extensive crew of animators, storyboard artists, screenwriters, 3D modelers, riggers, lighting, and most importantly for Dolby sound designers.
Dolby leveraged Oscar® nominated sound designer Steve Boeddeker to create the sound design for this piece. It is after all titled “Silent”, and it is showcasing Dolby Laboratories newest cinema technology, Dolby Atmos. If you have headphones, or a surround sound system hooked up to what ever you watch this on use it. The sound is fantastic. Turn down the lights, turn up the volume, and allow this animated short to envelop you.
