Update #7

"SOLIPSIST" Officially Launched!


Dear contributors,

Big day today - "Solipsist" finally premieres online!!   I hope you enjoy the film and you have my wholehearted thanks for making it possible.  

This launch is just the beginning :)   The film just got accepted into the San Francisco International Film Festival, as well as Vimeo's program at SXSW.  The film will be projected on buildings around Main Street in Austin during festival.  Solipsist will also have multiple screenings coming up in LA, including the after party for LACMA's Young Directors Night, and Futra's Launch Party at Dim Mak Studios.

Still even more to come!

Love and thanks,


Update #6

"SOLIPSIST" trailer released, Winner at SLAMDANCE

1 comment
Dear Solipsist supporters,

A lot of great news!  First off, the trailer for the film is officially up and has already been featured on racking up a lot of buzz:  

Solipsist made its premiere at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT just a couple weeks ago.  It received an overwhelmingly positive response and took home the Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short!

Also I've posted a very special thanks to all of our supporters on the official page for the site:

As for the final release, the full film will release publicly online in early March on Vimeo.  Will keep you all posted when the link is up.

Still in the process of getting DVDs, posters and other Kickstarter prizes ready to send out, I apologize that this is taking longer than expected.  Thank you all so much for your patience.  I hope to begin shipping these out  in late March through April following the film's online premiere.

Once again thank you all for standing by through this early premiere process as the film continues to make its way out there.  Your help has truly given this film its legs and the early attention we've received from Slamdance and the trailer alone is very promising.

Many many thanks and more to come,


Update #5



Hey everyone,

I'm happy to announce that after many long weeks and months of intense work, "Solipsist" is officially wrapped!  

My humble and unyielding thanks to you all again for your love and support that made this project possible.

Our next step involves submitting the film to various festivals and programs, with the hope of officially premiering it next year at a big festival (i.e.  SXSW, Seattle, etc.)  Aiming high and crossing fingers, anything is possible.  

I'll be making a trailer that will release online after the film makes its first couple festival rounds.  The full film will eventually make its way online on Youtube and Vimeo sometime mid next year.  Until then we'll be sending out various prizes to our supporters.  Hard copies and digital copies of the finished film will be released after the film makes its full online debut.

Thank you for your patience and stay tuned for more updates.

Wishing you all a great Thanksgiving!


Andy Huang
