A pair of pantyhose worn by an attractive woman becomes an object of desire first to her lover and then to herself. In the process, said object displays its seductive power to either compliment human sexuality - or commodify it.
"Stocking Stuffers" is an experimental comedic short which illuminates through two brief anecdotes how a pair of pantyhose can become an object of desire whose seductive power can either compliment human sexuality - or commodify it. In the first half of the film, the man and the woman engage in sexy banter triggered, in part, by the pantyhose worn by the woman. In the film's second half, the Man and the Woman appear in three interlocking pantyhose commercials. The first half of the film posits in a suggestive way how an object of desire such as pantyhose can compliment human sexuality while the film's second half suggests in a satiric way how the same object of desire can commodify human sexuality.

In the first scene of the movie, the right arm of the woman (Christy Scott Cashman) as it rests on the couch shifts positions each time the camera angle changes during her short conversation with The Man (Eric Scheiner). See more »
How would you like to share with me an exotic concoction of fitfully fruitful passions sprinkled with walking-finger flourishes of fine line fragrances dipped within a frothy mix of salivatingly sweet syrips, whipped cream, and purple hazel nuts - without the purple haze?
You've got a mouth-watering way with words, baby!

I was at the video release party for "Stocking Stuffers" when it was released in 2001. The film was received to great acclaim then and it's easy to see why. Although very short, this film is extremely entertaining with great performances by Christy Scott Cashman and Eric Scheiner. Both actors seem very comfortable with each other and the dialogue works well. There is plenty of sexual innuendo but nothing explicit. The first scene is very well done with some beautiful dolly shots and nice lighting. This was obviously shot on film and it shows. Angel Connell is a director with a lot of talent and I'm looking forward to see what he can do on a bigger budget. He certainly did a great job here with very little money. The 3 commercials are also of very high quality. Christy Scott Cashman is very charming and funny in them. She has a real talent for comedy. Overall I would highly recommend "Stocking Stuffers" and am looking forward to seeing more from Angel Connell and everyone involved.
