I was lucky enough to see Spike Jonze’s robot love story at a special screening a while ago – Check out Mrs Live For Films review of the night. Now you can catch it, well 5000 people a day can until it gets onto youtube! Well worth a watch over on www.imheremovie.com as it is a beautiful, moving and funny piece of film.
The 30 minute film, which forms part of the ABSOLUT campaign ‘In An ABSOLUT World, Ordinary Is No Place To Be’, is a robot love story set in LA and celebrates a life enriched by creativity. It proved to be a huge hit when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year, and later screened at the influential Berlinale in February.
5,000 people a day will be offered the opportunity to watch the film through a striking online cinema experience. ‘I’m Here’ is a creative collaboration which acknowledges ABSOLUT as a pioneering and cultureshaping brand.
The film stars British actor Andrew Garfield (Boy A, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Sienna Guillory, (Love Actually). The soundtrack includes original music by Sam Spiegel and original songs by L.A.- based art musician Aska Matsumiya and other emerging musicians.
Mark Hamilton, Head of Marketing for Vodka at Pernod Ricard UK said:
“ABSOLUT has a long history of creative collaborations which is testament to the brand’s unique and visionary perspective of the world. Our collaboration with Spike Jonze marks an evolution of our longstanding commitment to creativity. ‘I’m Here’ combines Jonze’s unique style with our vision of challenging convention and making ordinary life more interesting.”
The film is streamed in high quality and, thanks to social media functionality, viewers can watch ‘I’m Here’ together with Facebook friends. The site also offers a teaser trailer, bonus material and additional information on the director and cast.
