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.
