It's done. I can't believe it's actually, finally complete. Empire of Sock: Episode 3 and the complete omnibus cut will be released on Halloween 2014. I've got about two weeks yet, so I'm hard at work preparing more content to accompany the release:
THE MAKING OF EMPIRE (OF SOCK)
• Time-line of production and delays
• Footage of every stage in production
• Original versions of scenes/deleted scenes
EMPIRE OF SOCK CLOTHINGSTUFFS
• Six new shirts and maybe more Cafepress junk based on characters from the film!
EMPIRE OF SOCK TRASH FRAMES MAIL-AWAY SWEEPSTAKES
I don't compose my shots terribly carefully. Because of this, I end up tracing a shot multiple times, moving around individual shot elements each time until everything's positioned to my liking. This generates penciled-only junk frames that closely resemble part of the final shot, but cannot be used due to small defects or too many erased pencil lines that would show up during coloring.
I feel egotistical for thinking anyone would want these scraps, but it's this or the trash can. If you'd like one of these production mementos, send a (physical) mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll mail them out a few days before Halloween. I've got 12 regular sized frames and 5 large frames, and I'll try to evenly divide them between however many requests I get before Tuesday, October 21st.
I can only guarantee prizes for the first 17 entrants!
