Watch & Listen: Elle Fanning Sees The Stars for the First Time in ‘First Stars I See Tonight’ Short Film
First Stars I See Tonight is a black & white animated/live-action cross-over short film. It narrates the story of a girl (Elle Fanning) with night blindness and how her dad (James Patrick Stuart) gets her these military goggles to see the stars. It’s a lot of voice-over narration, incessant I should say, but it’s quite a sweet story and it’s less than 3 minutes, so if it even sounds mildly interesting to you: Check it out!
I liked it quite a bit, but then I like everything Elle Fanning does and it’s black & white. For a couple of seconds I got a Super 8 vibe there, which is a good thing, because I really enjoyed that movie. Apparently this is part of an upcoming variety show “HitRECord on TV” by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which will debut on January 18th at Sundance. Not sure what this show will be about, but this is definitely a cool way to kick things off.
oh it’s beautiful!! thanks for letting us know about this…
My pleasure 🙂 Glad you liked it! Turns out it’s not Elle Fanning doing the voice-over, as someone tweeted at me. I thought it was too perfect and it didn’t really sound like her (just an update)..
Hahaha that’s pretty funny! Yeah it must have been someone Scottish, because the accent was perfect. They did a good job of finding someone who sounded like what Elle Fanning might sound like had she attempted to speak with a Scottish accent
Yeah, I was like wow! I knew she was a great actress, but she really nailed this and then of course it wasn’t her 🙂
