In Capt.Clare's text record RE: NUMBER TWO, she brainstormed ideas for the episode. When she mentioned lost socks, I immediately remembered that I shot a short film about this very subject.


First of all, I was thinking there could a different, better ending than what happened in my film. Perhaps, numerous people can suffer from lost socks in the manner of a plague. We could show how various people track lost socks or differing reactions to missing socks.


You can view my short film here on Vimeo


I know the film is underexposed. I didn't light the room enough. The class used Super 8 cameras with black and white silent film instead of digital cameras. I decided to use the underexposure to my advantage and decided to style it as an old-time silent film. Each student received a single cartridge with 2 (or 3?) minutes running time.


I re-watched the film and wrote this shot list and added some annotations and suggestions in brackets.


Mid-shot of washer and dryer with title superimposed. Noise of running dryer.


Close-up of end of cycle signal button turned to the on position. Buzzer sounds.


Mid-shot of woman's hand (and some of her torso) opening dryer door and taking out socks.


Panning close-up shot of socks in matching pairs in laundry basket. The socks without matches are hanging over the edge of the laundry basket.


Mid-shot of empty hamper.


Wide-shot of woman sticking her head up to her shoulders in the dryer desperately looking for the socks.


Mid-shot of open dryer door with woman drumming her hands in frustration on top of the open dryer door. Slams door shut.


Mid-shot of woman at the kitchen island taking out brand new socks out of a sack.


Mid-shot of new socks with tags still on them laying on the counter.


Close-up of end of cycle signal button turned to the on position. Buzzer sounds. [same shot as above]

I found this footage while I was putting together my video background footage.  It was so creepy and cool that I knew I had to find a way to remix it one day.  


(the last bit got cut off, but it does fade to black when you download to view it)

I finally got this to upload and work right! Earlier, it would test fine in my browser, but then when I upload to the site, the timing was really off. I decided to try a different setting in Premier Pro.
