According to, Z-Machine Productions began creating Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes of Age, an original documentary that explores the development of Jim Morrison prior to fame.

Although there have been other documentaries focusing on the rock legend, this one is unique as it focuses on Morrison as a person rather than a persona and may provide a clearer understanding of his puzzling passing. The film will include intimate interviews with friends and family along with never-before-seen footage of his early years.
