The Sock MonstersWood Warts

Ever in search of sock salt, their staple diet, the sock monsters prowl the night, hunting out the bedrooms of smelly teenagers.

The commonest evidence of a sock monster visitation is the discovery of wood warts on household furniture. These nasty knotted fungaloids grow from the surface of any wooden surface a sock monster touches. If not kept under check, wood warts will continue to grow, requiring regular planing and sanding.

Sock saltSo anyway, this simple animation was created back in 1998, holy crap, that is a long time ago campers. Tools and software used: Plasticine, Adobe Premiere, Photoshop and an ancient 3d rendering program called Truespace, which no longer exists. The project took about 6 hours to complete from scratch.
