• Practical effects like costume design can be just as amazing as CGI. See Andrew Huang's mind-blowing experimental short: Solipsist. [1 of 3]

by Patrick James, managing editor of VSL.


  • The spectacular costumes come from Lindsey Mortensen. She also designed costumes for this wonderfully creepy Baths music video. [2 of 3]
  • Director Huang makes music videos, too, like this one for Avi Buffalo—a different tone than Solipsist, but check out the similar approach to color. [3 of 3]
  • Images (in order): still from Solipsist, still from Solipsist, still from "What's In It For?"

very short list is a
delightful e-mail that shares
cultural gems from a
different curator every day.
