Helping color Kurt Cobain’s world for Montage of Heck
Company 3’s Shane Harris works with director Brett Morgen on this new documentary

Director Brett Morgen spent eight years putting together the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which tells the fascinating and tragic story of the Nirvana front man in a very intimate way via never-before-heard recordings and animations based on his mostly unseen drawings. There are also very personal home movies and interviews Morgen did with the artist’s mother, band mates, friends and wife, Courtney Love. The film played at the Tribeca Film Festival, had a limited theatrical release and is currently on HBO.

For Company 3 (@company3) colorist Shane Harris, who also worked with Morgen on the director’s Rolling Stones doc, Crossfire Hurricane, the sessions were particularly fascinating and rewarding both because of his longtime interest in Nirvana’s music and because of Morgen’s strong appreciation of the role color can play in telling a story, even in a documentary.

In an act of desperation, Phil (series creator and star Will Forte) puts up billboards telling anyone who might care that he is “Alive in Tuscon.” Amazingly he finds other survivors.

The series, scored by Mark Mothersbaugh (see our story here), has already been renewed for a second season.
