02. The 'Trilogy Complex', Escalation, & World Building Into Mythos (via John Wick 3)
In this episode, we talk 'Trilogy Complex': in a modern film world where most get ranked, best-to-worst, as 2-1-3 or 1-2-3... what makes a 3-2-1? Does Wick 3 do it? (spoiler: probs-a-bly yes maaaaaybe) In that, another question - especially for action movies: Does escalating the stakes for each film run the risk of the main hitting a 'God Complex', and stakes start to feel less exciting? Also, what does it take for world building to rise into mythos? When even the smallest characters have huge potential to spin-off into stories of their own, and better yet - have fans want that to happen? Aaaand stay tuned to the end for rules on the worst possible drinking game you can play involving a John Wick film. We try to advocate non-spoiler rights & keep the divulging as mild as we could make it. Done off-the-cuff while eating breakfast. '- Hello? Hello?' 😏We'll get there.

01. Trailer: Introduction, Clumsy AF Anchor 'Tutorial', & Tangents Aplenty
In our trailer episode, we lay down some raw, non-scripted noob-ness in our first use of Anchor. In other words, first few minutes? Straight up tutorial on 'How NOT to Pod' 😒*smh*😪 Once that's done, get the skinny on why we chose the name 'Junior Luminaries' (what does that even mean?!), what to expect over the course of our run, and tangents on relative audience size + why Jared Harris is f*cking awesome.* (*At least, according to Jon - Jeff stil hasn't watched The Expanse or The Crown...**). (**Yes, we talk a bit about The Crown.)
