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.

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.

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.
