Director Statement

Shelter is an ambitious project from a fantastic script which was inspired by the BAFTA award winning 'Threads' (1984). We took ourselves from gorilla film-making to professional looking cinematic film-making, pushing the boundaries of anything we've done before and pulling in all our resources to give the script justice and create a great piece of short film cinema.
