All posts by Caroline Caldwell I was inspired to make "Shelter" when I was abruptly moved into a sketchy neighborhood and had just witnessed a new roommate's suicide attempt. Needless to say, "Shelter" was what I was looking for and I tried to describe that feeling with an animation. I created it using cut paper and stop motion photography. It's my first animation and it's a bit shaky. Since this, I've definitely found more stability in both my living situation and in my ability to make animations.
