Grant Morrison is one of the most poular writers in comics, and one of the most controversial. He is the Rock Star of comics, a philosopher and chaos magician who has used his comics to change both himself and his audience. He is a man living on the border between FICTION and REALITY, and this is his STORY.
The film was produced in close collaboration with Morrison and features extensive interviews with him, as well as never before seen photos and documents spanning his childhood to the present day.
Complimenting Morrison’s own words are interviews with his closest collaborators and friends, including Frank Quitely, Douglas Rushkoff, Cameron Stewart, Phil Jimenez, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Jill Thompson and many more. The film makes extensive use of found and abstract footage to make the documentary feel like a journey into Morrison’s mind.
The film was shot in Scotland, England, California and New York over the course of 2009 and 2010, and was completed in September 2010, the first feature by Respect Films.
