Last night I crashed so early that I woke up this morning long before the birds had even opened their eyes — when I checked the time it read 4:27am exactly. I did manage to sneak in a couple more hours, but those didn’t begin until at least 6:30am, which meant for about two hours I was half-awake and half-asleep, with one foot in this world and the other in somewhere that cannot be known. I had a similar experience last week which was kicked up a few notches when I ran into 2 giant robots and a tranquilizing music moment (you can read more about that HERE), but early this morning something even deeper and more captivating happened. I came across one of the most extraordinary experimental short films I have ever encountered in my life: SOLIPSIST by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Andrew Huang. The visuals and atmosphere contained in these short 10 minutes are absolutely spellbinding, and deservedly earned Andrew the SLAMDANCE 2012 Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short. This incredible film stars Mary Elise Hayden, Marissa Merrill & Dustin Edward, and was brought to life by Executive Producers David Lyons & Andrew Huang himself, with the stunning cinematography of Laura Merians. You can learn more about SOLIPSIST by following the film on Facebook and Twitter, and be sure to visit Andrew on Tumblr and his main website AndrewThomasHuang.com. Pure amazingness…
