The recent Oscar telecast made me think again how fast things change. It wasn’t that long ago that the Dolby Theatre was called the Kodak Theatre. I just read that IMAX theaters in Los Angeles are switching to laser projection. Even the Chinese Theatre is going with the IMAX Experience. Technology has certainly changed film making as we knew it, (and caused me to start this blog).
Anyway, Dolby released a short about film sound and I thought it would be nice to show it and the “making of” that goes with it. “Silent” reminds me of Disney’s film Paperman.
“Silent” is an animated short film created by Academy Award® winning Moonbot Studios. It celebrates how storytellers, inventors, and technology work together to create cinema magic.
The story follows two street performers who 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 to find the audience they always wanted.
