Jamie Travis has built an international reputation as a writer/director of precise vision with his genre-bending and darkly comedic short films The Saddest Boy in the World (2006), The Patterns Trilogy (2005; 2006), and The Armoire (2009).
His films have played to considerable acclaim at film festivals and art galleries alike, from Sundance to the Toronto International Film Festival (where all of his works have premiered) to the Centre de Georges Pompidou in Paris. Upon his first international retrospective at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, Time Out London called him “one of the world’s most talented and intriguing experimental filmmakers.” Retrospectives have followed in Nashville, St. Louis, and Prague. In 2010, Zeitgeist Films released a collection of his short films on DVD; his works can also be viewed at vimeo.com/jamietravis.
For a Good Time, Call… marks Mr. Travis’ feature directorial debut.
