Must Watch: The Jason Reitman Press Tour Simulator Video
Those of you who follow director Jason Reitman on Twitter know that he's been working on a pie chart since he started his "press tour" for Up in the Air last September. In addition to that pie chart, Reitman has been keeping track of every single interview he's ever done for Up in the Air - all three hundred of them. He cut together a video called Lost In The Air that looks at his three month press tour that includes photos of everyone he interviewed along the way - a view at his world from his perspective. Yep, I'm in there too near the beginning (at about 10 seconds in) from my interview with him on the gondola in Telluride. Watch this!
"Three months. Three hundred interviews. My press tour of North America and Europe with Up In The Air. A complete and utter blur." It spans from the early festivals to the premiere to the ticket stubs he had people take photos of on Twitter. You can also find the pie chart here: twitpic.com/qitxg. This is just incredible to see. It's just astounding to think about the life of a director, where for three months straight all he does is fly around the world and interview all kinds of different people. It's breathtaking watching all of this. I just love seeing the variety of people he gets to meet. This is what technology like the iPhone has allowed us to create.
