If you are a fan of Porter Robinson, or even Madeon, you could tell that there is a slight obsession with the likes of animations, official music videos, artwork relating to their tracks and a few more cool little details. Well the two of them have come together to unleash the brand new ‘Shelter Animation’.
It wasn’t so long ago that the two artists revealed the news that they would be teaming up with each other to release the brand new track ‘Shelter’, as well as the associated joint tour which Madeon and Porter Robinson headed out on. Now this news alone was pretty big. But they didn’t leave it there as the ‘Shelter Animation’ appeared, and what a beautiful piece of work this is.
Shelter tells the story of Rin, a 17-year-old girl who lives her life inside of a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful loneliness. Each day, Rin awakens in virtual reality and uses a tablet which controls the simulation to create a new, different, beautiful world for herself. Until one day, everything changes, and Rin comes to learn the true origins behind her life inside a simulation.
So you get the jist of what the two artists have brought forth in this cool little animation, and it’s a stunning piece of work which has been produced alongside A1 Pictures and Crunchyroll. The animation of Rin is also a beautiful piece of work, and if there is anything more to come from the ‘Shelter’ title, we could see a lot more work along these lines.
Hopefully more is to come from Porter Robinson and Madeon. Find out more on the ‘Shelter’ tour here.
