Did You Know?


Camera footage of the unfolding Midtown Avenue crisis was taken by Laura Felker and Enders Walker during the shooting of The Dark Knight (2008) during the summer of 2007 when both were filming behind the scenes footage of the action in Chicago. When director 'Jerry Vasilatos' conceived of setting a story between films and adding authenticity to the production values, he was inspired by the video footage he saw by Laura and Enders on Youtube. Theorizing that their footage could be the "point of view" from Mikey's camera and make it look like Heather and Mikey were in 'Christopher Nolan''s Gotham, Jerry contacted both videographers for permission to use their shots and both agreed.

It's amazing how professional some fan films are these days!
11 December 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Up until very recently, fans could never hope to produce a film about their favorite action hero where the quality standards would even approach the original. However, thanks to exceptional software (such as editing and rendering tools), cheaper and more easily available equipment and lots of spending money, I've seen a few films lately that have blown me away--surprising me with their quality and watchability. These are NOT films made by well-meaning geeks that only appeal to other obsessive fans of the series (like a few of the Star Wars fan films, for instance).

Two of the best of these films are Batman films. BATMAN: DEAD END is a great film that asks the important question "who would win if Batman took on Predator?" (I know you are all dying to know) and THE DARK KNIGHT PROJECT is a film that speculates about what might happen if film students went in search of Batman for a documentary film for their class. Both really excel with the special effects and the acting is pretty good. Sure, they are NOT indistinguishable from the original source material--but the gap is significantly tightened.

THE DARK KNIGHT PROJECT is a clever little film and I can't wait to see more from the talented team who made it.
