Feeling alienated? Or in this case robo-tracised? We don’t blame you but maybe this will help. Today, Spike Jonze’s highly anticipated short film I’m Here was released on www.imheremovie.com. This 30-minute robot love story is a creative collaboration between Spike and Absolut Vodka. Well, bleep!
I’m Here is a love story about two robots living in contemporary Los Angeles. The sad-eyed robot librarian Sheldon (Andrew Garfield) leads a lonely and methodical life, until he one day meets Francesca, a creative and free-spirited female robot (played by Sienna Guillory). Robot romance develops and the story is just as beautiful as it is unpredictable.
Absolut has a passion for all things digital, and on www.imheremovie.com, 5,000 viewers a day are offered an exceptional and highly realistic cinema experience. The film is streamed in high quality and thanks to social media functionality, viewers can watch I’m Here together with their Facebook friends. The site also offers a teaser trailer, bonus material and additional information on the director and cast.
The soundtrack includes original music by Sam Spiegel and original songs by L.A.-based art musician Aska Matsumiya and other emerging musicians. Screened at the 2010 Sundance and Berlinale Festivals, I’m Here will be globally released at www.imheremovie.com on 19 March 2010.
