Sock Puppet Porn

Today on Twitter – for whatever reason – some of Derrick Pierce’s loyal followers started up a conversation about socks. Which lead to a question about socks in porn movies – I have no idea why – but that lead to Sock Puppet Porn; which there actually IS some, with Derrick Pierce in it (well, a sock playing Derrick) that I made.

Yes, I made it.  

"Upload" - the movie...

The story is, after we wrapped filming Upload for SexZ Pictures in late summer of 2007 we were all a bit loopy. We had worked our tails off for months prepping the movie, followed by the 20-day shoot. That’s a long shoot for porn! When it was over I got the crazy notion in my head that I needed to make a sock puppet version of Upload for the DVD Extras. So I did. I wrote the sock version of the story, even made some crude storyboards. For days we (me and the prop creator) worked on the various puppets, styling them after each character in the movie and attempting to capture each actor’s likeness. Then with a few friends – Aiden Starr, Eli Cross, Peter James Smith, Ren Savant – lending a helping hand, we set out to shoot what became a 12 minute version of Upload which we titled Laundry Load.

You don’t need to have seen Upload to understand the Sock Puppet version, although it might be funnier and it will make a whole lot more sense.

A few fun facts about Laundry Load:

  • All socks were over 18 years of age.
  • Those are my kitties in the opening scene of ‘the production meeting’ as well as wandering through a few other scenes.
  • The props you see are actual props from the movie Upload.
  • I voice and am the hand inside several of the characters.
  • I did the production design for Upload and for the sock puppet version as well.
  • The first ‘group’ sex scene features one of the tastiest cumshots ever.
  • There is something vaguely disturbing about sock puppet fisting.
  • The ‘orgy’ takes place in the tumble dryer at a local Laundromat. We literally ran in dropped quarters in the machine and shot the orgy as the owner was coming up behind us to throw us out (there were only three of us but the camera kind made us stand out. We ran out, hopped in the car and sped away while he was cussing us out in Spanish.
  • You can hear me starting to giggle at several points throughout the short.
  • The crew really did get two cars stuck in the sand in the desert. One was Eva Angelina’s and the other belonged to the director Eli Cross.
  • In the end credits we renamed every ‘actor’ and person from the crew – giving them each a name that was similar to the real people but somehow had to do with laundry, clothing or sewing in some way.

Funny thing is, when it came time to send the rough cut of Upload to the owner of SexZ Pictures so he could view the $350,000 masterpiece he funded, we actually sent him Laundry Load first just for a laugh.

Upload was nominated for 22 AVN Awards that year and won 8. Including Best DVD Extras. Because Sock Puppet Porn rocks!
