Watch This: Trailer for Spike Jonze's New Short Film I'm Here
Yep, Spike Jonze already has a new film - I'm Here is a 30 minute short that is premiering tonight at the Sundance Film Festival (I'll be seeing it this evening as well). The short stars Andrew Garfield as a library assistant who plods through an ordinary life in LA until a chance meeting opens his eyes to a the power of creativity and ultimately, love. When this new life and love begin to fall apart, he discovers he has a lot to give. This short film proves that ordinary is no place to be. It's essentially a robot love story which, from the mind of Spike Jonze, means it's probably brilliant. This trailer looks wonderful and I can't wait to see it!

This is creepy, and beautiful and awesome. I want my head to be a computer! Love the animation of the faces (not sure if its 3d or robotic), they look wonderful.

Yes...well... another indication how our leading creative beings are unashamedly conscripted by corporations... and that's an idea that sounds like a good Spike Jonze film...

It looks like a Chris Cunningham video if Chris Cunningham stopped dropping acid, stopped listening to Aphex Twin, and accepted Christ into his life...

Wow it looks good, but also a little weird! It might take me a little time to get used to watching the robots. But definitely a movie I would watch! I hope that it is good!
