This film looks good. I just added it to my Blockbuster queue.
Kurt Cobain About A Son is a an intimate and moving meditation on the late musician and artist Kurt Cobain told entirely in his own voice - without celebrity sound bytes, news clips, sensational tabloid angles or attempts to mimic a grunge aesthetic. Instead, filmmaker AJ Schnack has created something closer to an autobiography of Cobain - a profound first hand account of Cobain's own successes and failures, thoughts and experiences, allowing the audience unprecedented intimacy with a legendary figure in popular culture - set against the wildly divergent Pacific Northwest locations that loomed so large in Cobain's life.
An excerpt of my presentation last April at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary in Dallas, filmed by Luke Hawkins. The workshop was hosted by La Reunion, and included experts in a variety of scriptwriting backgrounds -- from stage, film, and especially comics.

It's a huge file (roughly 171 MB). I'd recommend you "right click" and "save as" to watch it, but either way. Thanks to Luke Hawkins and Hawk Digital Media for recording the event and all the presentations. I received my two disc DVD set in the mail a few days ago, and it came together nicely. I'm especially pleased with how Luke integrated the power point.

This short comes from Supinfocom, and features some great character designs and action sequences. With the urban/videogame influences and fantasy fight scenes, I can't help but think of how great it would be to see Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim brought to life this way.
