A new documentary about the early life of Jim Morrison is currently being made by filmmakers Jeff & Jess Finn, but they need a little help from you.
A Kickstarter, for the movie, “Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age”, is looking to raise $50,000 to help finish and release the documentary. Billboard Biz is reporting the film features interviews with friends and family that have never spoken of the Doors lead singer on camera before. Some of the interviews include Morrison’s brother Andy as well as professors from Florida State and UCLA.
The Finns write for the Kickstarter campaign:
“For over three decades, myriad articles, books, biopics, and documentaries have promised to render the ‘real’ Jim Morrison, but they’ve generally amounted to hyperbolic, gossipy rock-star depictions of Morrison’s tenure with The Doors. Few have delved into Morrison’s formative years. And none have fully fleshed out Morrison, the human being, and who he actually was as a person. aim to present ‘a fully fleshed out Morrison, the human being, who he actually was as a person,’ as opposed to what they claim other documentaries have yet to do.”
