Today we continue our series on personal work with an up close and personal interview with Andrew Huang, director of the mind-bending viral sensation “Solipsist.” Chances are you’re one of the many people who have viewed this video nearly 1 million times in about a month (between Vimeo and YouTube). Andrew has an amazing story of how he got to where he is today. From being called to JJ Abrams office right out of art school, to the intricacies of how his amazing personal project came to life.
Andrew Huang is a commercial and music video director living in Los Angeles. His career started when his dark sci-fi short film “Doll Face” went viral on YouTube, earning him attention from J.J. Abrams, William Morris Endeavor and numerous international festivals and galleries. His work has been featured at Cannes Emerging Filmmaker Showcase, SIGGRAPH’s Electronic Theater, the Annecy International Film Festival, MOCA Taipei, ZKM Media Museum, as well as various publications including Motionographer, DAZED & CONFUSED, and Creativity Magazine’s “Directors to Watch.” Andrew graduated with a degree in Fine Art and Animation from the University of Southern California..

Hey @daredreamermag, the featured @triplscoopmusic artist this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME
Hey @daredreamermag, the featured @triplscoopmusic song this week on @crossingthe180 is NAME
Replace NAME with the name of the artist or the song. It doesn’t have to be the artist’s Twitter name, but if you DO find and include their Twitter handle, I’ll enter you twice! You have to enter the tweet exactly like this so that I know you’ve done it and because there’s no “e” in Triple Scoop Music’s twitter handle. Your best bet is to copy and paste. Do this throughout the week and on next week’s show I’ll announce the winner. You can do this every week until further notice.
The featured song this week is “Turn the World Around” by Gordon Pogoda.
Triple Scoop Music is also offering a discount on your next purchase. You gotta listen to the episode to find out the code.
