Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods and Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts are two documentaries directed by Patrick Meaney that show the worlds of these two seminal writers. Using interviews and imaginative footage, they are invaluable portraits of not only the work of the two, but the fandoms they created.
And disclosure, I appear throughout the Warren Ellis documentary!
Initially released by Sequart, the two films have been available for download for a while but now you can watch them for free on YouTube! The Ellis doc just went live.
Meaney has continued to make documentaries including The Image Revolution and, his first narrative film, House of Demons and he has some exciting projects in the pipeline as well.
The Grant Morrison doc will be available shortly. We’ll update with the link.
