Congratulations to Kevin Renick
, the local writer/music fan/songwriter who appears to have had a song of his included on the soundtrack to Up In the Air
. (You know, the one George Clooney filmed here in St. Louis earlier this year.) Joe Williams of the Post-Dispatch
has all the details on his blog, Joe's Movie Lounge
-- and it's a neat story involving Renick asking director Ivan
Jason Reitman to listen to the song after a talk at Webster, and Reitman making good on his word. Very cool!
[Edit: Renick writes in and says: "I'm still waiting to find out if I'm on the actual soundtrack album...I only know that my song is heard over the movie credits right now."]
