Spike Jonze, critically acclaimed director of feature films “Where The Wild Things Are”, “Adaptation”, and “Being John Malkovich”, is today’s featured Creator on The Creators Project. A wunderkind in the film industry, Spike started out doing photography for extreme biking and skate publication Freestylin’ Magazine and eventually co-editing youth culture magazines Homeboy and Dirt. This led on to gigs shooting music videos for the
likes of Fatboy Slim, Bjork, The Chemical Brothers, and The Beastie Boys, garnering attention and ultimately launching his directing career.

Spike will also play a key role in this weekend’s upcoming Creators Project NYC Launch Event, which will host a screening of his latest work, Los Angeles robot romance “I’m Here”. Part of special interactive video installation, audience members will have the chance to answer questions afterwards written by Spike himself about the film – these will eventually become part of a special film project that will live on The Creators Project site. Additionally, as a special bonus, Japanese singer-songwriter Aska will be performing live scores from the movie’s soundtrack at the event.
