Have you ever wondered what happens to all the odd socks? Why is it that you can put a pair of socks into the dryer and only get one back? From the makers of “BTS on the Road” and “Bengleton Socks” Web TV series comes a film to answer these questions.

Follow investigative journalist Corg Pontell as he conducts interviews, chases down leads and may even be in mortal danger to get the answers we’re all looking for. What happened to the socks?

Corg Pontell and a cast of crazy, zany characters will keep you guessing and will, for sure, keep you laughing in this comedic short film.

Comedian/Actor/Creator Brian T Shirley has teamed up with Comedian/Actor Lance Morrison and Comedian/Producer Drew Howard (Drew Howard Entertainment) to bring together their first official short film. Sprung from the imagination of Lance Morrison, what started as an episode of the “Bengleton Socks” Web TV series, quickly evolved into its own stand-alone film. Drew Howard came aboard and added much depth to his scenes and also pulled in cast member Keith Dee. Then there’s Bill Davis, Larry D Shirley, Sam Shirley, Tamara McClure, Rocky D (who plays 2 characters) and Blair Barna.


Artwork for the first poster done by Susan Fedor. Music by Pete DeLorenzo ( “They All Remind me of You” Instrumental and vocal versions), closing credits music “Dumb Girl” by Charlie Wiener and dream sequence music by Daniel Birch “Escape, your life depends on it.”

You can see the film here in NSAEN magazine. https://vimeo.com/252526426 Password: BTS1 Thanks to Beatrice Davis and Tamara McClure. The film will then be submitted to film festivals worldwide.

*”Two Go in…One Comes Out” is already garnering much attention. It has even inspired Betty Jo Tucker, author of the memoir on which “Cake: A Love Story” is based to write a poem. See the poem and review below the trailers.

Something’s Afoot

Documentary, mockumentary — and now socumentary!  Director Brian T Shirley has invented a new film genre with his amusing “Two Go in One Comes Out: A Socumentary”. It’s a short film starring Shirley as an investigative journalist trying to solve the missing socks mystery. Who hasn’t wondered what happens to all those socks that seem to disappear so frequently? And that’s probably why this little movie made me chuckle through every scene. Of course, Shirley’s ability as a talented entertainer helps considerably!

Watching this comic gem motivated me to write the following poem.

Two go in, only one comes out.
So what’s this film all about?
This socumentary presents
a mystery with fun nonsense.
Missing socks puzzle a worried guy.
to find the answer he must try.
He works hard to solve the case.
He questions subjects face to face.
Cleverly made and funny too,
this film is one that you should view!
