Sid is a documentary maker who has never made a documentary. He’s just been given loads of money by the Woodville Arts Council (WAC). They want him to go out and make a documentary about how the people of Woodville took on the might of the Belgian Petrochemical Corporation, and won. Kind of like that Erin Brockovich lady. With less, y’know, cleavage.

Part one. Sid’s a documentary-maker who has been given loads of money by an arts council to make a show about the fictional village of Woodville’s victory over a Belgian petrochemical corporation. Before he gets started, he needs to find some willing helpers.
Sid gets interviewed. He realises his story is complicated and difficult to tell. He needs to do some re-enactments.
The Woodville Arts Council (WAC) summon Sid to check up on how their documentary’s coming along. They’re aiming for awards with this one.
Get it Right
Sid suddenly realises a rehearsal is required. He assembles the troops.
Sid’s heartbroken. He’s messed things up with Jane. He’s not going to make the doco anymore. That is until his friends step in. It’s an “Artistic intervention”.
Race to the Finish
Sid’s back on track and on a roll. The documentary is going to be screened. It could be huge. Well, as huge as Woodville gets. And Jane’s there too. Will he get the girl?
