SOLIPSIST

An experimental film dealing with themes of separation and connection, Andrew Huang’s latest is a jaw droppingly gorgeous visual symphony in 3 movements. What is even more fascinating about Solipsist though in this age of CG trickery (and considering Huang’s own CG expertise) is that evidently most of it’s stellar effects work is practical (see making-of video). Huang wrote;

“We shot the film in a tiny stage in Burbank, CA.  Everything was shot against greenscreen so the entire film required an immense amount of compositing, especially since much of the film involves practical effects.  The only real CG in the film are the tendrils and tentacles that cover the girls’ faces in the first scene.  We used a lot of footage reversal effects to create the effect of the girls’ wardrobe growing out over them.  The underwater scenes were shot in a 100 gal fishtank.  We puppeted the underwater creatures with rods.  They were made from a combo of fish bait/tackle, feathers and sculpey.  By the end of the shoot they were completely mangled.”

Incredible. Do yourself a favor, watch and share this incredible piece of filmmaking. Its absolutely trippy, and I swear you’ll get lost inside this short, but lost in a completely phenomenal way.
