A cinematic poem about the world-changing power of invention, the short film Escape is the latest example of animated storytelling that showcases state-of-the-art Dolby technologies. Combining techniques such as miniatures and animation with the spectacular imaging invites the audience to imagine and experience a joyous vision of the future. It is a story of persistence and passion that is intended to inspire individuals to never give up on their hopes and dreams. Singer Imogen Heap developed an original soundtrack that wraps the audience in the unveiling the lead character’s changing emotions as she faces the challenges of a dark, disturbed landscape and persists to transform it into a place of joy and delight. Watch the video for “Magic Me” above or sign up for Imogen’s SupaPass to access new music and her entire catalog, including an instrumental version of ‘Magic Me.’
“I really enjoy the challenge of working in a new creative space, feeling the music all around me and imagining the movement of the characters with the sound effects, and meshing them all together so that it becomes kind of one sculptural piece.”
After crash-landing on a desolate planet, a lone space explorer must find a way to make her new home habitable. The teenage heroine is an older version of the central character in our Emmy award–winning film, Silent, known there as “the Kid.” This intrepid character displays courage, passion, determination, and curiosity as she transforms the barren landscape she has found into a beautiful planet. The film is directed by Limbert Fabian and Brandon Oldenburg. Check out a behind-the-scenes look at the music production of the film.
