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!!!

You sir MUST finish this Please!

I question whether the next Batman will be just as good as Dark Knight, but Nolan has a way with making movies.

However your director's viewpoint is amazing as well.

I also like how you've brought back Detective Bollock from the Batman Animated series.

You've re-captured the beauty of this movie.

I always wondered how the Batman will re-inspire the faith in the people of Gotham.

Good animation and incredible voice acting!

Good stuff!

Gave you a 5, but a 9 mainly on your one flaw with sound effects, and I gotta say the stock footstep sound you used from Counter-Strike took me out of the experience. Bear in mind you don't always have to use sound to portray walking or running. You used the sound when the camera shot was pointing straight down and Bats was running across the rooftop to jump to the next building, and that honestly should have had no footstep sound accompanying that.

If you can re-upload this with some sort of different foot-step sound effect, or maybe make your own, I think it would seal the deal. Also, when Gordon was giving his monologue, it seemed like the VA was just reading along with no emotion. Just saying.

Otherwise, good, good stuff. I can definitely tell you used your clay-city model to good use, because those city shots were gorgeous. Work on some of the robotic animations, (Bats running in the end, looks like he had no joints), and you'll be kicking more ass!

Excellent series...

Batman the Animated Series, the best Batman series out there, and the one that even gave us many of our now current villains that weren't around in the original corny adam west version. Nice touch with the whole thing, my only suggestion is next time try to use a little less gradients, and more shading.
