'American Sock' wins Best Narrative at Barrio Film Festival 2013

Over the past weekend AMERICAN SOCK was screened at the 2nd Annual Barrio Film Festival to a crowd of giggling audience members.  Although the highlight of the festival was getting to meet and share our work with local filmmakers, we have admit that winning ‘Best Narrative’ was the icing on the cake!

Drumroll, Please! A new Tallgrass Pictures Short Film



Tallgrass Pictures could not be more excited to announce the release of AMERICAN SOCK, a short film of a woman looking to find love online only to fall in love with a sock puppet.

From the witty mind of writer Jason K. Allen and brought to life by the zany crew at Tallgrass Pictures, we are proud to present Angela Gulner and Sto Strouss in AMERICAN SOCK!

Enjoy!

"I love it!  Seriously, you all did fantastic work - it turned out better than I could have imagined.  Very clever with the graphics, title page, closing credits, music, etc.  The whole piece just has a lot of energy to it - fun and lighthearted, just what I was hoping for.  Good acting, too.  Yep, I'm certain I made the right decision giving the script over to you guys.  Thanks for everything - it was great working with you.  Who knows, maybe we'll work together again someday.  In the meantime, I'll continue to be a big Tallgrass Pictures fan and I look forward to seeing what you do next."

-Jason Allen (writer)

 

It's a wrap!

It’s a wrap!  Last weekend we finished shooting AMERICAN SOCK and the footage looks fantastic! The project has now been passed on to post-production for them to work their magic and assemble the final product.  Thank you to Gavin who snuck us a few stills from the film to share with you guys… Enjoy!

"The Sockfather"

This week we are finally filming the long anticipated short AMERICAN SOCK which means our studio is overflowing with sock puppets and very random props for the film (some which include a wholly trash can…)
 
One of our favorite props for this film (besides our star Bob, or course) is our “Sockfather” poster.  This set piece took about an hour to create and will only have about 2 seconds of screen time!
Stay tuned for more funny updates as we film this hilarious little number :)

Love "Socks"

We all know the dating scene can be quite rough. That’s why in this digital age the use of dating websites has skyrocketed in hopes to weed out incompatible mates. But what would you do if you got a message from…a sock puppet? Yes, a sock puppet. And that sock puppet turned out to be everything you’ve been searching for in your wildest dreams. Here at TGP we’ve been having a blast gearing up for our new short film, “American Sock." We’ve had great laughs watching team members stand in as characters in the film, test shooting everything from dinner scenes with the sock puppet, to green screen tests, and even “sexy" bedroom scenes. So stay tuned for “American Sock." We hope you’ll have just as much fun watching it as we’ve had making it!
