Several months back I did some casting work on a short film for Spike Jonze. It was a touching story and I was looking forward to seeing the final outcome. Well, here it is after its debut screening at SXSW.
Kudos to casting directors Justine Baddeley and Kim Davis-Wagner for their terrific casting, and to Sonny Gerasimowicz for his incredibly emotive robot designs (Sonny also created the extraordinary Wild Things for Jonze’s WHERE THE WILD THNGS ARE). And, of course, to Mr. Jonze himself for continuing to tell such wonderful and unusual stories.
I’M HERE can be seen at what has to be one of the more inventive and fun web sites to introduce a movie: http://www.imheremovie.com/. (The photo above is the main page for that site).
The short was available on Youtube for a short time, but has since been removed with a message stating “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by The ABSOLUT Company Pernod Ricard/Spike Jonze.”
