Sundance Video Review: Spike Jonze's Short Film 'I'm Here'
The first film that most people, including our own Brandon Lee Tenney, saw at Sundance this year was actually a short film on Thursday night. Included in the Shorts Program I (which featured three other good short films) was Spike Jonze's I'm Here, a 31 minute short about robot love. We ran a trailer for the film earlier this week and have been talking about it lot because it's getting great buzz. After seeing the short, Brandon recorded a video review of I'm Here with Peter Sciretta and David Chen of /Film and also Erik Davis from Cinematical. For those interested in hearing their thoughts on Spike's short, watch the video.
I'm Here is written and directed by visionary filmmaker and artist Spike Jonze, of the films Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, and Where the Wild Things Are previously. This 31 minute short film stars British actor Andrew Garfield and actress Sienna Guillory, one of Maxim's 100 sexiest women. It was funded by Absolut Vodka is a commercial for the liquor, but it also available for sale at the Sundance Film Festival and will probably be released later this year. We'll definitely keep you updated on the release plans for I'm Here, because this is a short that a lot of people will want to see. Hopefully you're more excited for it now!
