Thanks for coming to check this out. My name is Jason Reitman and I directed the film "Thank You For Smoking". Over the next few months, I'll be blogging about my experiences promoting my first feature film. Hopefully, I'll be able to give some sort of insight into what it's like to release a movie and answer any questions you have about... well, anything.
I'm writing this, my first post, from the lobby of festival headquarters at the Sundance Film Festival. It's 8am and this place is already hopping. People are all on their way to their first screening of the day. (they start showing movies here at 8:30am). My festival experience has just been unreal so far and I look forward to telling you more about it.
In the last 48 hours, I watched my film play before 1400 people, met two of my all time favorite directors (Alexander Payne and Kevin Smith), and played poker against Phil Hellmuth. Yeah, I lost.
Check in for updates and photos shortly. I'd post some snapshots now, but I lost my camera yesterday at the pizza joint on Main Street. No fear, there's no shortage of cameras here and who knows, maybe I'll snag a free one from one of the swag houses.
