    Porter Robinson and Madeon - Shelter

    This short film made along with A-1 Pictures & Crunchyroll is breathtaking. Porter and Madeon's world building and visual direction never disappoints.

    The video's story follows a girl named Rin.

    From the video's description:
    "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."

    This film serves as the basis of the visuals for Porter and Madeon's Shelter live tour, and if you aren't familiar with Porter's live worlds show, it's a surreal experience.
    Below are some screengrabs from the film. Be sure to check this and the tour out.

    Fans of Worlds will recognize the chimes leading into Sad Machine, signifying that Rin is, in fact, the girl the listener encounters on the album.
