Set between the events of Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", two high schoolers attempt to be the first to capture video footage of Batman, and inadvertently encounter the masked vigilante who saves both their lives. Written by
The Gotham City Police cruiser was rented from one of the picture car rental companies that also supplied it to Warner Brothers for The Dark Knight (2008) on a tip from film fan and eventual crew member Laura Felker. While the outside of the vehicle was picture perfect, the inside was gutted with a roll bar for stunt driving duties it was put through on The Dark Knight. See more »
It's amazing how professional some fan films are these days!
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.
