Director and Writer Eric Dow ("Honor in the Valley of Tears") brings us his second documentary as he goes behind the scenes of the fan fiction short film, "Batman: Dead End." In the winter of 2003 commercial director Sandy Collora and some of his friends set out to make a low-budget short film for his demo reel. What they wound up actually doing was making one of the most elaborate, most watched, most talked about and most controversial short films ever made: Batman Dead End. Considering the amount of press and admiration Batman: Dead End garnered, everybody expected it to quickly propel director Sandy Collora into the Hollywood stratosphere, but instead his career failed to launch. Now, we get the inside look at the legend of the superhero and the people who help create it including Collora, comic book legend Neal Adams, and convention all stars Sean Clark, Shawn Reeves and Jordu Schell. Behind The Mask: The Batman Dead End Story is an incisive look at the making of the short film, ... Written by

This is definitely a must see for not only fans of Batman, but those interested in the filmmaking process as well!
Following filmmaker and artist Sandy Collora from his early beginnings to what he's currently working on is a journey of ups and downs and triumphs and setbacks as discussed by Sandy himself as well as several legendary artists, sculptors and writers all of whom shed much light on a variety of topics like what goes on behind the scenes of not only indie films but major studio ones too.
It was great seeing all of the work that went into the Batman: Dead End fan film. From the costumes to the fight choreography, it showed absolute love of the source material and was filmed in a way that hasn't been seen before or since.
It was also intriguing to see how success and ego can affect a person for better or worse and to see the process of a man learning from the past and applying it to the future but still on his own terms is quite powerful.
The most inspiring thing for me about this film is seeing someone utterly dedicated to their vision and craft that continues pushing on through everything to make it happen.
Originality and creativity is what it's all about and I'm definitely looking forward to what Sandy and his team does next!
