About the project
LOCKLINETim is a fan of superheros, he's being bullied often at school, he decides to do an act of valor for his biggest villain when she's in the victim role

* This project was cancelled by the film makers. 



We are four students from Breda University and we are going to make a family film about 'De Held Zonder Sokken'.

The film is about a 12 year old boy named Tim. He is a big fan of various comic books and series about superheroes with his biggest superhero named Socker Shocker. This superhero is known for his socks with special powers. Tim wears the same (limited edition) socks every day and he also feels like a superhero. Tim's mother tries to encourage him to put on other clean socks. Tim refuses this time and again. Tim sees his world as a superhero world around him. He does not have many friends at school and is regularly bullied by his interests. To him, his 'biggest villain' is fellow classmate and bully named Sophie. What nobody knows is that Sophie is secretly also a fan of the same superhero. Sophie is afraid that she will be bullied when people find out. After Sophie nevertheless expressed her interests and she was bullied herself, Tim decided to perform a heroic act and thereby sacrifice his most valuable properties. This makes him 'The Hero Without Socks'.

The purpose of this short family film is for children to know that they should never be ashamed of who they are and what they like.

However, we cannot do this without your help and therefore we ask for a contribution to the production of this film. Even if only a little, we are happy with every donation.
