I'm Here was produced in partnership with Absolut Vodka, which has previous collaborated with artists Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Helmut Newton."They didn't give me any requirements to make a movie that had anything to do with vodka," said Jonze. "They just wanted me to make something that was important to me, and let my imagination take me wherever I wanted...making something that affected them emotionally was the only thing that really mattered."
