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 »
This film exhibits professional production qualities. As a short, it serves to demonstrate the capabilities of its creators, and will hopefully serve as a springboard for them to move on to bigger projects. While the subject matter may not be everyones cup of tea, it is distinctive enough to allow the film to easily be considered on its own, rather than being lumped in with a great number of efforts centered around sexual fantasies. The writer's ability to use intelligent innuendo rather than resort to explicit graphic or verbal displays shows his ability to entertain rather than bludgeon. The cast come across as comfortable in their roles, with demonstrable talent even though it is a short production. Technical details are seamless enough to satisfy nit-pickers that focus on errors rather than on the qualities of the production. All in all, a great first effort for this production team.
