Socks is a webseries chronicling the misadventures of four twenty-somethings, as they try to figure out the world around them and the sexual encounters that it includes.
Alex and Kent are best friends. One is looking for love, the other for sex. Alex, while lovable and kind-hearted, is rendered goofy and nervous around Melissa, roommate of Kent's on-again off-again girlfriend, Sara.
Our goal for this project is to come up with a relatable and humorous take on the second puberty that is living in your twenties. We explore themes like casual hookups, toxic relationships, and just when you're supposed to take your socks off in bed. Everything you've ever pondered about dating is answered in the first season of Socks, seven live action episodes of 4-5 minutes each!
We're self-producing this series, which means we are handling our own budget. Spreadsheets galore! Each time we get props, makeup, hard drives, wardrobe, food and water for the cast and crew - that comes out of our budget. All these little things add up!
Please contribute to our project - we'll be able to turn our dreams into reality and you'll feel all warm and fuzzy and gooey and stuff.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge with Socks is in funding. Our ability to tell stories in this medium is limited to what we can afford to create.
Another challenge is logistical. Have you ever tried getting an entire cast and crew together for a shoot, along with locations, props, scripts, call sheets, shot lists, extras, and a magical fedora that keeps trying to fly away? Oh, you have? Then you know something is guaranteed to go wrong - you just can't guess what in advance. The key to success here is to plan contingencies, stay calm and deal with issues quickly and effectively as they arise. Also, shoot the fedora.
Creatively, challenges and risks abound in all sizes. Can we stay true to our characters and our world without making the story boring, or untruthful? We believe we have. Can we tell a story that is engaging and comical, while also meaningful to a broad audience? Again, we believe we have.
Lastly, we are pretty worried about the general state of the earth's environment. Just throwing that out there.
