    just trimmed a couple of minutes before the FILM FORUM premiere. Like a haircut before going out in public.
    There are over 35 minutes of cut scenes that are not in the film.

    We shopped around for some animation companys and divided the work between two. Then hired a company in NYC to complete the work that the first two were never going to be able to complete. Just a handfull of shots.
    It communicates impossibly complicated brain chemistry issues but working with the animators consumed ridiculous amounts of time. I am told this is standard, even when working with talented animators.

    Phil hilts on our web site has an interesting analogy to tobacco executive’s unwillingness to acknowledge the carnage caused by their product: compares them to a syndrone observed in concentration camp guards. Its a well observed analogy.

    An understandable interpretation. The title is a reference to the uniqueness of an industry where winners are distinguished by a company’s ability to addict its customers.

    Saw victor when he was testifying on cspan and was intrigued by his story. Got to know him and researched the tobacco industry and took a long time to figure out how his story would feel like a complete movie. Afterall the bad guy never dies. After the RICO ruling in 2006, that felt something like an ending so in 2009, the financing was set and we started shooting. I write too slowly to communicate well in this venue.
