Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead
Story #1

Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead take Pixar’s 22 Rules for Storytelling and How Stories Make Us Human, make them fuck each other, kidnap the resulting baby and dance out a prophecy of its future life before its barely opened eyes.

"Imagine a bullfight without the bull: it would be a set of aesthetic manoeuvres, pretty twirls and pirouettes and so on – but there’d be no danger. The bull, crucially, brings danger to the party… that’s what the real is: the tip of the bull’s horn.”
Tom McCarthy

“It’s horrible. Brilliant, scintillating, guillotine catching the sunlight as it falls dazzling, but also horrible.”
Maddy Costa, Exeunt

“Story #1 is like a live grenade thrown at television: a thrilling exploration of truth, fiction and the strange space between.”
Jonathan Wakeham, Screenwriter
