I MISS HOME
In my designs I like to capture a moment. If possible, tell a story.
Shelter is a short animated film by Porter Robinson, Madeon, A-1 Pictures and Crunchyroll based around the song Shelter. The song had come out earlier this year and was a hit. Shelter tells a story of a girl (Rin) who is living alone in a virtual world in which she can create and explore. She has been placed in this world by her father in the time tragic events are occurring on earth. The animation tells a beautiful story of her memories and reason for being.
I really wanted to showcase what this animation means, as well as how it relates to me as creator. Throughout the animation we see Rin longing for the past. So on the back we have Rin displayed grasping her tablet, the device that allows her to create her own world. On that tablet I have drawn a small house and a sun with the writing "I miss home." I've included this onto the tablet because I am about to move out for the first time and I always enjoy adding little bits of my life into relatable designs. Behind her is earth, which has been broken apart to subtly show what is no longer there. In that we see the text, "She depends on you" as Rin depends on her Father for her safety leaving Earth. Below that is the Japanese "ずっと見守ってくれるよね" which means "You'll be watching over us." This was meant mainly to refer to my family and their support towards my new adventures. If it were not for those who trusted in me, I would not be where I am, creating the things I always wanted to make. I am surrounded by amazing and talented people that I wish to grow further with. This was very much a passion project of mine and I hope you all enjoy it.
