Andrew Huang's Incredible Short Films

My friend Andy was one of the most brilliant visual thinkers I knew in film school, and since graduation a few years ago he's been doing us all proud by making incredible short films and music videos that defy categorization. I wanted to share a few of my favorites here with you. If you're a David Lynch fan or just enjoy stunning, other-worldly imagery, I think you'll dig Andy's work.

DOLL FACE was Andy's breakout film, and it's easy to see why. It asks questions about beauty, about technology, and about what it means to be human -- all without saying a word.

THE GLOAMING is an apocalyptic-feeling nightmare, bizarre and beautiful.

ALL REMOTE AND NO CONTROL
Andy made this music video a few years ago -- I don't love the song, but I can't get the image of the roots growing out the guy's face out of my head.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR?
I LOVE this Avi Buffalo song, and how Andy's special effects mesh with the natural world in a really fascinating way.

If you like Andy's work, check out his plans for a new film called THE SOLIPSIST, which is on Kickstarter, below. It looks pretty incredible.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
