Director Jamie Travis has joined production company Interrogate for US representation. Jamie was one of the breakout stars at Sundance last year with his irreverent comedy For a Good Time, Call…, starring Ari Graynor, Justin Long and Seth Rogen. Focus Features released the film theatrically last August to great acclaim— Variety called the film “disarmingly entertaining” and The Hollywood Reporter called it “brisk, funny and sweetly raunchy.”
Prior to For a Good Time, Call…, the Canadian-born writer/director established a solid international reputation with his darkly comedic short films The Saddest Boy in the World, The Armoire and The Patterns Trilogy. Upon screening a retrospective of his films at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, Timeout London called Jamie “one of the world’s most talented and intriguing experimental filmmakers.” A New York Times profile that followed called him “one of the most visually minded contemporary filmmakers you’ve never heard of.” Jamie’s films have screened at over 200 film festivals worldwide—from Sundance to SXSW to the Toronto International Film Festival—earning stellar reviews and awards along the way.
“Jamie is a standout voice in a new class of comedy directors,” said Interrogate Managing Director Jeff Miller. “For a Good Time, Call… is incredibly smart with fresh humor and a ton of style. Jamie is equal parts Wes Anderson and Judd Apatow.”
In addition to directing commercials for the Canadian market, Jamie has directed music videos for indie artists Tegan and Sara for the tracks "Back in Your Head" and "Hell".
