Jimmy Joe Roche

Jimmy Joe Roche is a filmmaker, professor, and father based in Baltimore, MD. He’s writing his first feature-length screenplay. It’s a series of rants delivered one after another by about eight different characters. His plan is to shoot it in 2023. He’s going to raise the money himself. It’s a comedy.

Jimmy’s childhood home is surrounded by giant moss-covered oak trees. The walls are covered floor to ceiling with Haitian Art, American Folk Art, Outsider Art, and Prison Art. Sometimes huge black cockroaches crawl on you when you sleep or land on you at night or crawl over your feet.
His favorite board game is Cave Evil.
His most prized possession is his friend Allen Cordell’s kidney stone.
