Short Film Of The Day: The Experimental Color and Effects Orgy of ‘Solopsist’

Why Watch? What if Charlie Kaufman and Salvador Dali got to film a live-action version of Fantasia? It’s a great question, and Andrew Huang‘s Solopsist comes close to answering it. It’s no wonder why it won the Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short at Slamdance this year.

It’s an explosion of practical and special effects with no need for a narrative. Two women become one giant, furry technicolor beast; strange sea creatures offer up a symphony of snorts; and a young man turns to dust in vignettes that are evocative and visually arresting. Plus, after you pick your jaw up off the floor, you can see how they made the magic.

What will it cost? Only 10 minutes.
