“If you think about Kurt, he’s a contradiction. He could be sincere and sentimental, and also ironic and sarcastic,” said Morgen. “He was sweet and sour. He was incredibly funny, too, and the film has to reflect his spirit.”

Though Cobain’s legacy centers around his music, Morgen hopes to shed some light on the rocker’s other artistic pursuits. “The thing about him people might not know too is that he was an incredible visual artist and left behind a treasure chest of comic books, paintings, Super 8 films, all sorts,” said Morgen, calling the film “a mix of animation and live action that’ll allow the audience to experience Kurt in a way they never have before.” Morgen hopes to release the film in 2014.
