In addition to his work on Human Nature, Jonze has been a producer on several films, including the Jackass movies and Synecdoche New York (which he thought he might direct before realising that Kaufman really had to do it).
His next producing project is an adaptation of Shane Jones' novel Light Boxes, which music video/shorts creator Ray Tintori (above) will direct.
"I grew up on Spike’s work, but it wasn’t like meeting the queen of England. It was a conversation, a collaboration," recalls Tintori.
"He told me he liked the baby seat in the video I did for MGMT’s Kids. You have no idea: That was one of those things where you pour all this work into a detail and you wonder, 'Is anyone even going to notice this?' And then it’s Spike Jonze noticing, which was cool."
