THE PITCH

Oh hey! We’re Rosa Tran & Derek Smith.

No water for us, thanks, we’re good. So excited to share our vision for Unlikely Love Stories with you.

So, yeah, let’s dive in!

LOGLINE

Unlikely Love Stories is a darkly-comedic animated anthology that explores the highest highs – and very low lows – of unexpected love in the most unexpected places.

Part 1: Tender Vittles tells the hilariously twisted tale of an adorable mouse who falls in love with a dangerously delicious gingerbread cookie.

OUR INSPIRATION

The idea was inspired from our own experience being in love – which is amazing, but not always easy. The kind of love stories we typically see don’t always reflect our love – or even the harder bits of reality. Love may be universal, but the media's projection of it can still be pretty limited.

Unlikely Love Stories started as the short Tender Vittles, but as we dug into this dark story about the tragic love of an adorable mouse and delicious cookie, we discovered that we had many more stories to share.
