Nieves’ I’m Here Zine

Published January 29, 2010 by Graham


The small press superstars at Nieves just released a beautiful zine comprised of images from Spike’s new short film, I’m Here. Cinematographer Adam Kimmel’s gorgeous grain and seductively smoky light take center stage here, in a selection of stills that underline the exceptionally organic vibe of this subtle sci-fi tale. From Nieves:

Spike Jonze’s new half-hour short film titled I’m Here is a robot love story celebrating a life enriched by creativity. The movie is set in contemporary L.A., where life moves at a seemingly regular pace with the exception of a certain amount of robot residents who live among the population. A male robot librarian lives a solitary and methodical life – devoid of creativity, joy and passion – until he meets an adventurous and free spirited female robot.


Never Let Me Go

It seems like this film is amazingly under the radar right now. But when I was in England, our good friend Mark Romanek was filming a movie adapted from the book of the same name by Kazuo Ishiguro and I got to visit him on the set and sneak into his edit room on a weekend and see some of it. I don’t know what I can and cant say about it but I love the story. Even just a few scenes he showed me on their own were really moving. The combination of a science fiction film handled very subtly and naturalistically that also made me cry and is beautifully photographed (Adam Kimmel) is a trifecta. Congrats Mark!! We will post more as we can. Here is a shot stolen from the edit room that gives some sense of the look of the film and Mark at lunch on weekend. We had insane japanese food at a place called Roca on Charlotte street.
