Grant Morrison is one of the most popular 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 Morrison comic.

The film was shot in Scotland, England, California and New York over the course of 2009 and 2010, and was completed in September 2010. It was picked up for distribution by Halo 8, and is now available for purchase on DVD or HD download, as well as streaming on Hulu and Youtube. A new two disc edition was released in May 2012. If you already own the original edition, you can buy or download the bonus disc separately. The new edition includes over an hour of bonus Grant footage.

The film was produced by Respect Films and Sequart. This is the first feature film for both companies. Sequart has published two acclaimed books about Morrison, Grant Morrison: The Early Years by Tim Callahan and Our Sentence is Up: Seeing Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles by Patrick Meaney. Respect Films produced the dreamatic webseries The Third Age, which was inspired by the storytelling style of Morrison himself. In 2011, the same team produced Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts
