Arcade Fire, Spike Jonze Collaborating On Something Secret
According to /Film, the director will be in Austin, TX to do a short film with the band based on the concept of “friends growing apart.” MTV also got a Jonze spokesperson to confirm the collaboration and location, but he wouldn’t name any other details. Jonze and Arcade Fire were bound to work together after Where The Wild Things Are (Jonze said the band were a huge inspiration). But it’s not clear if this will be a short film like Jonze’s work with Kanye West, an extended music video for their upcoming album, or something in-between.
In the meantime, watch Jonze’s awesome I’m Here robot short film, featuring Sleigh Bells’ “A/B Machines.” A robot has it playing in her car while she’s driving, naturally.
