UPDATE: Daily Feature AND front page!!! Wow. This is my first one. Something I've been working at for a long time. Thanks everyone for the great feedback and votes!

Also, a few of the rather constructive critical reviews have pointed out that the "running" shot looked a bit off. So I have touched it up and made it a bit smoother. Thanks for the reviews everyone. Keep em' comin'. I love feedback.

Well, where to begin...

I came up with the idea for this project shortly after seeing "The Dark Knight". I thought it would be cool to show how Batman handles the fact that he's become a fugitive. This was supposed to be a three month project but took about six. I wanted to combine elements of "The Dark Knight" and "Batman: The Animated Series". I also bought a draw pad (finally) so I could really get the illustrations down. It was illustrating the city that was the hard part. I actually built a clay model of the city so I could get all the perspectives right. No easy task.

Just so everyone knows, there's a "Return to Menu" button in the bottom left corner of the screen while to movie is playing. Just in case you can't see it.

I'd also like to thank all of my voice actors for helping me with this project. I think they really added alot to it.

And one more thing. I do not own the rights to any of the music used in this movie, nor do I claim to. It's all primarily from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Anyway, ENJOY!!!

Review.

The production quality on this film is breathtaking, it's clear you've spent a long time on it. Well done.

Wow

Honestly when i clicked the link to this i thought it was going to be another crappy parody, but I was way wrong. As a huge Batman fan I can easily say you did great. Also i liked how you mixed "The Dark Knight" and "Batman: The Animated Series" together like you said. However i think that a pause button would have been nice.

Amazing

This flash obviously took much thought and effort to make. To take a fan-writen story while keeping the spirit of the Batman franchise is nothing less than incredible. You have earned my respects to you, if not all of ours. Be proud.

Awsome

About the perspective issue, google 'perspective drawing' and you should find dozens of tutorials that will help you out with that. There are actual methods to getting the perspective of shapes and buildings down perfectly. Once I read two to three good tutorials about it all my backgrounds I draw now for my projects are perfect.

Aside from that, you could also improve on your facial animation. At the scene where the detectives are talking to one another, their eyes and face were pretty static, and when you had one of them moving their eyebrows, it looked like he was twitching. Just spend more time making their eyebrows move more dynamicaly and make them blink their eyes, cause I swore they didn't blink once. Anyways, good job! I like the artwork and the fighting scenes where great!

Really, really really good job!

I wasn't a fan of a bit of the animation you did (i.e. the light being multiple circles, or the windows on the buildings being gradients in one scene) but I loved the whole story you got. Timing on pretty much everything was great.

Only one thing I'd like to note that's flawed in your story line. SWAT, or any other organization for that matter, would not have the whole team approach a criminal for the same reason batman took all of them out. It's only one that moves in, while the other(s) hold the criminal at gun point.
