Escape, a science fiction animated short from Moonbot Studios

Escape is a science fiction animated short from Moonbot Studios, branded content for their client Dolby Laboratories. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival as a demonstration of the company’s surround sound and image technologies. The original song, Magic Me, was composed and performed by Imogen Heap. From Dolby:

In Escape, a lone space explorer crash-lands on a desolate planet and must find a way to make her new home habitable… This intrepid character displays courage, passion, determination, and curiosity as she transforms the barren landscape she has found into a beautiful planet, and reunites with her family.
