Feral For Socks | Trailer
I got the inspiration for “Feral For Socks” while overcoming the urge to beat my washing machine into the ground after losing yet another sock to the appliance’s strange whims. The film explores the nature of giving in to one’s vices, showcasing my yearning to be wild without real world consequences.
The clumsy Princess Ullis [UH-lees] crashes her bike into a laundry basket and loses her favourite golden sock in the process. However, Lacey the fox stumbles upon the missing sock and decides to marvel the sock before she is startled into hiding.
As Ullis searches for her lost sock, she meets Osiris the dancer. The performer has just recently found missing teeth of her own. Before Osiris can find out who lost their teeth, the two team up to find Ullis’s golden sock before and the fox!
About the Production
The majority of the props and costumes were locally sourced from the directors own home. To the dismay of the Property Master, Hannah Chang, the 5 smaller wisdom teeth were graciously donated and extracted from the director and their best friend’s mouth.
One of the few exceptions being the conch shell, which was found in DOP Pablo Garcia Garcia’s front lawn.
Fun Fact! On the dawn of the shoot, the director’s father gutted the washing machine to make transportation easier.
