Where the Missing Sock Go

We all know the story. You put 12 socks in the laundry and you come out with 11. It doesn't make sense and it's not right. So I spent many months studying this phenomenon and trying to figure out where the missing socks really go. I couldn't, so instead, I made this movie. I hope this movie will make you root for a sock like you never thought you could.

I made this animation for a class at UC Berkeley (interestingly enough in the architecture department). I already knew how to animate and used the class as a way of putting aside time to animate. It actually turned out to be way more work then I suspected (or should have known) and it was very difficult to balance this, other classes, work, social life, etc. But I did it! For the class, I spent basically the entire semester on this one project. I hope you enjoy it because it was a ton of work, I never want to do a project this long again.

So that is where socks go

I liked this flash,the animation was great and i loved all the music you had here,seeing the sock come alive and crawling around like a worm was funny in a weird way plus the music theme at the time helped too,overall this was a cute flash to watch and i enjoyed it very much.

Thanks for the review!

according to ren and stimpy

All the missing left socks are within another dimension accessible via black hole :D

Still I really liked this animation, even if it doesn't have ren and stimpy's obviously superior scientific backing. :D

OxSox responds:

Actually that theory is in the pre-loader more or less. Which is kinda crazy because I didn't think I was stealing it from Ren and Stimpy. Kinda of makes me wonder how many of my "original" ideas were actually in TV shows I watched as a kid :/


he gulped. loool.

An interesting point of view. That's one nice thing of an interesting story.

OxSox responds:

Thanks for the review!

Ah... so that's what happens.

Well, this makes total sense now.

Anyway, the animation was fun. A great silent adventure. The frame by frame work was good, a tad choppy at bits but otherwise good.

Great work though!

Thanks for the review! I basically agree with you on the fbf. It was a big thing I was working on in the animation and I think doing the movie helped me improve my style. Not to pad myself on the back or anything but I thought I really nailed the ogre swinging the club though, I think that may be my best fbf to date.


i like the idea of a magical explanation of why my one of my socks is missing sometimes, but lets face it, it doesn't make much sense but its alright, i liked the story about the struggles that you have to go to before you could reach you're destination, really liked it , would have given it a higher score, if the design of the characters and the background was drawn better, anyway it was good but needed improvement

OxSox responds:

Thanks for the review, I know my artwork is what separated this animation from being above average and great. I wish I was a better artist, but the only way to improve is keep making movies, right?
