The Jokers are Teacher and Petulant Child grappling to understand their place in the universe. Whether or not to roll over and accept the cards being dealt. Pondering everything from Fee Phi Foe and Fum to Data`s pursuit to be human. They meander and fumble with diverse topics such as Douglas Adams Theory "The Fundamental Interconnectedness of All Things", "Universal Synchronicity and Serendipity" and how to play a major part in self-coaching and motivation. Querying universal consciousness ...

Each day brings us into a strange new world, one where what WE used to do is gradually being taken over by robots. Well, maybe not, maybe Artificial Intelligence, A.I. In the form of cars, lorries, potato pickers, lawyers, doctors, artists, dentists, mechanics, and filmmakers. What? We are all being taken over. So what's left? If all the creative s…
 
It doesn't matter whether you are building a Universe, Multiverse or just a simple little, short film project, you have to work out all the details, plan for all possibilities and remember the extra little ingredient of magic is the unknown that will always throw in a little extra bit of spice. That's the fun bit, the not knowing what will happen, …
 
What is a reset? Usually, it is when you press a button and the numbers go back to zero. Often we think if only we can press the button and start again. But is that really what we want. A year ago, Garvin and I were excited about where the journey was taking us. At this point, with massive disruptions going on in the world, beyond our control where…
 
Be Passionate is the theme in this episode because being in the film industry can be quite a juggling act trying to catch great paying jobs and then trying to produce a project that will show the world who you really are. The trouble is you need both, the first to pay the bills and the second to meet your own creative aspirations. If one dominates …
 
You know, Garvin pretends he doesn't like to go deep. He sees himself as being quite simple and shallow, just paddling away letting nothing go higher than his ankles. BUT in this episode, he goes deep, and I mean deep, reaching down into the depths of his soul, where no one (including himself) has gone before. So deep, that even black holes are sca…
 
As we travel back from our future guesses to be in the room with 52 Jokers Wild, we have jumped back into a few of our early shows to see what we were talking about. Initially, it was about fear, and then we seemed to find that as a recurring topic in later shows. Then we looked at what was needed in the industry and how there seemed to be a parado…
 
In the room, this session is Phil McKenzie, COO of Goldfinch who talks about Finance, Production & Ventures in Entertainment & Exploring Web3.

Grainne Humphreys, Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival is "In The Room" with 52 Jokers Wild. Most of us focus most of our attention on getting our films made and are usually exhausted by the time we get our babies birthed, BUT, like the real thing, that's when it all started to happen. The sleepness, diapers to change, feeding them so t…
 
The dragons are coming out. They're all over the place, whether sculptures, iguanas or fantasies. This is Garvin's hot topic, as he sees himself as a real dragon, with his sharp tongue, and fiery speech and often George doesn't get a word in edgeways. But not this show. In this show, Garvin takes the reins as the show host and interviews George. Wa…

Judith Blackburn, director of the Chicago Irish Film Festival says the strongest films coming out of Ireland are horror stories. Though a good comedy would also go down well.

Irish F-ing Attitude is all over the place this week. There's no stopping it.

Over the last six months, Garvin and I got to talk to many leading female filmmakers and businesswomen, all with a strong voice and a sense of purpose. Each at different stages of their career.

The last producer told Roni the budget was just ten grand. No problem. 48 hours later. Bump. There's the script. No messing. Job done. None of this li…
 
CJ Walley is stirring up quite a revolution. "Power to the People," Garvin fists the air, spurred on by 'Citizen Smith' starring Robert Lindsey as Wolfie Smith in the old British TV series from the seventies. "More like Winston Smith from George Orwell's 1984," George remarks. But CJ Walley's revolution is in screenwriting, ramping up the action wi…
 
Stephen T. Ford was shy, reserved and introverted as a writer, BUT then it twigged, the only way to get noticed was to muscle in on the director's gig and make his own shorts.

Michael O'Sullivan was a gift, coming in at the last minute as a referral by Aidan from a previous show. Garvin and I were like old prospectors in some far off Canadian ravine watching out for old grizzlies that might have come bounding out of the undergrowth looking for a tasty meal. Instead, we struck gold, that rare nugget that pans out and brin…
 
Aidan O'Sullivan, Actor, Voice-Over Artist & Comedian, had hoped to do a monologue from Shakespeare but there was no chance of competing with Garvin's monologue in this show.

Dave Thomas, Writer, Producer and Director, is "In The Room" with 52 Jokers Wild. Discs started flying off the wall. Garvin and I weren't sure if the alien invasion had begun.
