Before we dig into the meat and bones of the series it’s important we examine the specifics of how it was made and who it was made by. First and foremost, Nightwing: The Series has absolutely zero affiliation with DC. It is a fan film made by a group out of Las Vegas called ismahawk that is made up of Danny Shepherd and Jeremy Le – a couple of self described nerds.
If you watch the series you will notice the high production value – completely debunking your usual perception of a fan film. This is in part to the huge budget (for a fan film) received as part of a Kickstarter campaign.

The film was directed by Danny Shepherd, and here's what he had to say about it...
A short action scene centering around the force abilities of a Sith vs. a Jedi, But of course, what's a Star Wars fight without some good old fashioned lightsabers actiony goodness!
We are huge Star Wars fans and knew we had to make a video once we found out Jj Abrams would be directing Episode VII.
In honor of The Dark Knight Rises coming out, we decided to make a short film based on one of my personal favorite DC/ Batman characters; Batmans old sidekick, "Nightwing".
We were really inspired by Christopher Nolans world as well as the amazing game "Batman Arkham City", so hopefully that'll show through.
We had a lot of fun making it even though we only had a few hundred bucks as a budget and not a whole lot of time to put it together! We would love to revisit it again someday!
There's nothing groundbreaking or mind-blowing here, just a fun fan-made short that hopefully some fans will enjoy.
