Oh god. The trailer made it to YouTube, and people are taunting me with it. Let’s get this over with. I have, at best, a face for radio. Unfortunately, I don’t have a voice for radio. This is horrifying and I don’t want to look.

The trailer for CAPTURED GHOSTS, a forthcoming documentary about my work.

  1. When the trailer started it was dead silent in that room. And then the beard came into focus and everyone knew exactly who it was haha

    Can’t wait to see the documentary :)

  2. Basically, if I hadn’t have participated, they would have gone ahead anyway, using interviews with other people. So I booked out two days to do the filming and ensure that they were at least getting good data…!

  3. I thought your voice was that of a man that had swallowed an ashtray, but it sounds “thoughtful” -for me anyway- and it seriously amped up by that moody ambient in the background. Can’t wait, Mr. Ellis, Can’t fucking wait.

  4. I saw your tweet about “Kill me now”. The background music is kind of cheesy but you yourself are just fine, and I say that as someone who has never seen you on video before, only your words.

  5. Ah, toughen up! You look like you, that works, end of story. I’m working on doing more push-ups so I don’t look like a fat git at Anime Central next month; we all wish we looked better, but in the end, it works. Congrats.

  6. Tobacco, alcohol and caffeine. This will get an R-rating in my country! Oh well, not so bad as Australia, I guess, where it will either be cut to pieces or just completely banned.

    @Mike Cane: The Up series is an incredible work.

    @Paul Sizer:

  7. I would have no problem returning to the UK every few years and directing a series of these. We had such a great time filming him. The man in person is a juggernaut of personality. I could feel the walls of reality around the hotel shake slightly when I watched him exit his cab.

  8. Always figured that Ellis would sound like Rorschach from Watchmen. Sounds more like Terry Pratchett imitating Rorschach from Watchman ;-)

  9. For all the people that keep mentioning that they haven’t seen Ellis on video before, he’s interviewed in the supplemental stuff on the “Iron Man” DVD.

  10. my nipples just got hard, watching that… yeah, ok, overshare.

    seriously, warren: no one likes the sound of their own voice (or at least no one who isn’t fairly stupid or shallow) look on the bright side, you don’t sound like alan moore.

    getting to hear you speak was the absolute highlight of my last comicon- i am SO looking forward to this.

  11. Now there’s the trifecta: Alan Moore already has a doc, grant morrison will have one and so will you. my three favourite comic writers, at their humane best. like someone said before, can’t wait, mr. ellis, can’t fucking wait.

  12. I gotta tell you, that trailer is not something I can show to someone and say, “Check this doc out, it’s about a writer I really like.” I sure hope there is another trailer on the way at some point. That one looks sleepy.

  13. Huh. So that’s what you sound like. Less menacing then I thought. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I don’t want to wait till 2011 to see this though.
