Shelter, always reminds me home. As some people said, home is your last shelter. Only at home, you’ll feel safe; Only with family, you’ll have no fear. But it is a long way of building up one for yourself. Lots of connections, constructions and deconstruction involve. As I wrote when I featured this film, it reminded me a lot of our current construction work around the house, but I would not feel so satisfied if I had not work so hard for it. You will never find a better place to invest your energy, love and passion on other than your own home and family. 

Not like other 3D animation film, Shelter brought us a lot of free minds, lots of thinking. It could be anything you thought of, or any spirit you had. It is like a open ended exam questions, you will never be wrong or right. It just let you meditate. Let’s do it with this week’s top rated new film on VoteMov, Shelter from Carl Burton. 

And thanks to Carl, we have an email interview with him to share some more background information on Shelter and his future plans. Check out the interview.

Follow our BOTW, and each week, we’ll bring you the best short film and an interview with the creator.

This is a interesting thought of putting together NASA footage with a soliloquy from a dying robot. Never thought of a Sci-fi like this. Telling the story from a outsider, the robot’s point of view.

But personally I’m not really into this graphically. The footage is not as attractive as some VFX and repeat a lot. While the story is good, but it feels like I am listening to a radio or audio book. Film is story plus picture, it won’t be tempting without any of these.

Well refreshing presentation could do a magic to any film, just like Robbie. Votes from viewers shows that we all love new things, and trying new stuff will always get support! And after all it was just a romantic gift for Neil’s girlfriend, I might have taken it too serious. It’s your votes and your opinions the most respective one here on VoteMov. Let’s hear more from you guys!

Our voted best indie film of the week (08-Sep-12 to 15-Sep-12) by Neil Harvey from Sydney, Australia,Robbie.

Afghanistan- touch down in flight. A beautiful short film shows a whole new side of the country and proves me to be so prejudiced. I am touched deeply by this short film with no single line of word. Only the land, the people and the music could turn my 30 year’s prejudice around. It’s a great work and any great piece of creation ought to be, manipulating people’s mind in a good way.

Our voted best indie movie of the week (1st Sep 2012-7th Sep 2012)- Afghanistan touch down in flight by  Augustin Pictures.
