Sean Browne is best known as the author of the children's book, "The Very Loving Caterpillar," and the corresponding award winning short film by the same name.

There is a full pitch deck available for review for those interested in becoming involved.
According to Browne, "The subject matter of the film is a spiritual film with heavy animation and profound thoughts, motivations, and synergistic interactions between the characters portraying elements of courage, love, teamwork, energy, quantum mechanics, nanotechnology, and duality. The short, "Atom's" will be approximately six to seven minutes long.
When discussing the subject matter of the film, producer and director Sean Browne, summarized by starting with the logline of the film, "Inside the body of a sick, 13-year-old princess, Logiq, a carbon atom who is head of defense, runs away from home and faces his worst fears in the outside world." There is a princess, Princess Satya who is sick and dying, so her parents call for anyone who can save her."
Browne discussed the summary of the film,
"A scientist named Moon shows up and shares a solution, a solution to which the king and queen agree. Inside Satya's body, Logiq, the head of defense carbon atom can't handle his duty to protect his people and his home from the viruses trying to destroy it, so he runs away. Where he ends up is outside of the body where he finds himself in yet another similar predicament and runs away again; however, this time his friend Zeal, an oxygen atom. Zeal convinces him to stay and help defeat the enemies. Logiq, along with the help of his friends, is victorious and gains the courage to go back and fight for his home."
