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!!!

This is absolutely brilliant. One of the best flash animations I've seen. Superior voice acting, good action, good animation. All around good.

Most flash animations have crappy voice acting that you can't tell what is being said due to the distortion levels. This animation rises above everything else.

My eyes are transfixed.

I'm simply blown away. If I could, I want to take you to court and sentence you to 10 years to work on more.

But I can't. I can only sit here in awe and Google for a new Batman movie, (Or watch The Dark Knight again). I applaud you in an exponential perpetual motion. You have made an honourable tribute to the Batman name. I thank you for this.

If this was the beginning of the next Batman film

I'd be absolutely impressed. It works perfectly, the action, the style... even the script.

But it's not. It's a flash. I expected to see some shoddy animation, bad voice acting (I admit, it wasn't perfect) and terrible dialogue.

Instead, what I saw was a snippet of a the the essence of the Dark Knight, brilliantly done and absolutely captivating. Blown away doesn't even begin to describe it.

I'd give you 10/5, 20/10, but unfortunately that isn't allowed.

So if nothing else, absolute congratulations on this beautifully done flash, and I'd be absolutely amused if the next batman movie begins in a similar way.

There's no way to express how good this flash is, so I'll stop here.

The overall story was amazing. The poetic and artistic style you had really looks professional. I'm not saying that the animation was 10/10, I'm saying that the overall story was movie worthy. You are definitely going somewhere with animation/story writing. Keep up the good work, and don't stop trying. :)
