Director/writers take on girlfriend-stealing and skypigs. Two films with very real characters. Oil refinery time lapse?! Work, responsibility, and letting your guard down. Learning who your characters really are. Scheming and conniving. Agreements and disagreements with Gavin. Imperfect heroes. Why two atheists think evangelizing is the right thing to do. God, No! Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales. Patrick Wilson. A bit on lighting and eye shine. Getting away with anything. A very different direction for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Come of age in Britian, Karl Pilkington. The market for a coming of age throw-back film. Power in ideas. Julie’s feminine power. Having your eyes opened. Cemetery Junction and the Ghosts of Christmas. Meatcart on a train. A separate conversation about Karl Pilkington and An Idiot Abroad.
