Sequart Organization and Respect Films are proud to announce that their feature-length documentary Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts is now available for free on Sequart’s YouTube channel SequartTV.
Captured Ghosts features the most extensive interview ever given by Ellis, whose groundbreaking body of work includes comic books Transmetropolitan, The Authority, Planetary, Global Frequency, RED, FreakAngels, and novels Crooked Little Vein and Gun Machine. Spanning from his first memory watching the moon landing as a child to the success of the RED film adaptation, Ellis’s acerbic wit and core belief in humanity come across like never before, revealing the unique point of view that has made him such a pivotal and influential figure to his massive audience of artists, journalists, scientists, and fans.
Along with the man himself, the film features Academy Award-winner Dame Helen Mirren, Patton Oswalt, Joss Whedon, Darick Robertson, Ben Templesmith, Matt Fraction, Joe Quesada, Wil Wheaton, Brea Grant, Claudio Sanchez, Stoya, Andy Hurley, and a Warren Ellis Muppet.
Captured Ghosts is directed by Patrick Meaney; photographed by Jordan Rennert; produced by Meaney, Rennert, and Amber Yoder; and executive produced by Mike Phillips, Julian Darius, and F.J. DeSanto. Kevin Thurman is the creative consultant.
And if you’re a diehard Ellis fan, you’ll definitely want to check out our book Warren Ellis: The Captured Ghosts Interviews, by Patrick Meaney and Kevin Thurman (and of course Warren Ellis). During the filming of the documentary, we interviewed Warren for nearly ten hours, and this book is the transcription and categorization of that footage.
