Daniel Whitaker is doing the laundry one day when he finds that one of his socks is missing. When he searches the dryer, he's thrown into a dark and spooky world full of old missing clothes. He finds his other sock, but not everyone there wants him to leave with it. This is the first animated short film by Austin Hillebrecht and the winner of the New Zealand Prize at the Hamburg Animation Awards in Hamburg Germany.

This is amazing! Smart story, animations have great movement and the music is just right :)

This is amazing. I'm going for college soon to learn 3d animation. May I know how long would it take to make an animation this long?

Thanks a lot! This took me about 5 months of straight work. I was most likely pulling 10 to 12 hour days while doing this. Even more near the end of things. Best of luck in college!

I remember sometime when I was a kid, I saw a show on TV with a story very similar to this one.... nice animation :)

Thanks! I wonder what that show was...

omg you replied to me. I know it had the exact same story, but I think it was live action. It was a long time ago, maybe even a dream. weird :meow:
and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you you're a cool artist okay bye.

That's so cool. I like the character and inside the dryer. Great job!

You know... It's just awesome. It has a Tim Burton feeling to it, being creepy but not 'grown-up only'. And yet it has something unique, personal... Great work!
