Animated Dolby film ‘Silent’ wins two Daytime Emmy Awards

MUMBAI: Dolby Laboratories’ short animated film Silent won two Daytime Emmy Awards at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Daytime Creative Arts Emmys ceremony.


Created in conjunction with Moonbot Studios and CAA Marketing, a division of entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA), Silent represents the evolution of film technology from the silent-film era to the present day. The three-minute film celebrates how storytellers, inventors, and technology work together to create magic in the cinema.


Silent won a Daytime Creative Arts Emmy in Outstanding Special Class Animated Program (executive producers: William Joyce and Vince Voron; producers: Lampton Enochs, Trish Farnsworth-Smith, and Angus McGilpin) and Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program (directors: Limbert Fabian and Brandon Oldenburg)


“We’re elated that Silent was recognized so richly by the Academy, and we celebrate this achievement with our partners at Moonbot Studios and CAA Marketing,” said Dolby Laboratories vice president and executive creative director Vince Voron.


Silent is an animated short film featuring Morris Lessmore from Moonbot Studios’ 2012 Academy Award winning short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. In Silent, Lessmore and his fellow street performer, The Kid, dream of bringing their picture-and-sound show to life. When they discover a magical contraption inside an old theatre, they embark on a cinematic adventure of sight and sound, traveling through movie history to find the audience they have always wanted.


The two Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award wins mark a first in the creative category for Dolby.
