When it comes to Spike Jonze, how else can you describe the man but other than original? His resume touches on all aspects of creativity with directing music videos, (Beastie Boys - Sabotage and Bjork) unbelievable feature films like Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and creating the MTV show Jackass (and staring in it at times).
Recently Jonze completed a short film with Kanye West titled We Were Once a Fairytale. This was Jonze's second time working with Kanye after he co-directed the video Flashing Lights.
Jonze has again tackled the short film arena with his newest creation for ABSOLUT Vodka I'm Here; this 35-minute short debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January. ABSOLUT has given Jonze complete artistic freedom and realized that consumers are tired of having brands shoved down their throats.
I'm Here is a robot love story "celebrating a life enriched by creativity". It takes place in the not so distant future of L.A. where humans and robots live and love together. The film focuses on a male robot librarian who lives a solitary and methodical life - devoid of creativity, joy and passion - until he meets an adventurous and free spirited female robot.
