Jason Sussberg, a documentary film graduate student at Stanford, contacted me after seeing my Builders of the Pacific Coast slide show at Bookshop Santa Cruz in April, 2010. Jason emailed he wanted to do a piece on "idea of "home.I am curious about how the new American landscape is going to be shaped after the financial crisis; how people are going to view homes as a place to live, not as an investment to live off of. I am especially interested in your latest project that you eluded to last night about small homes being something you create, without necessarily needing banks. My film is going to be a poetic and philosophical project, not necessarily journalistic."

Jason and friends, as an exercise in shooting real film (as opposed to digital), ended up with a 6-minute movie on me and Lesley and our home, and by golly, they got it right. Which hasn't always happened in my encounters with the media. They even got me skateboarding. Here it is: http://jasonsussberg.com/SHELTER.mov
