And I am busy at work on preproduction on Batman 1969. I plan to launch a Web site for the fan film soon, and plan to seek additional casting. I need to cast Inspector Lewis Erskine, FBI Assistant Director Arthur Ward, Robin/Dick Greyson, Commissioner Gordon, Scarecrow and some other roles.

I have a bit of good news, BBCR starts filming the first day of winter break! We're hoping to get all filming done over the 3 weeks of break.

Hello. It might interest the community to know that there is something new on the horizon. I am the writer and director of an up-and-coming live action series of webisodes that will be making its debut next year. It will be very episodic in nature, with each chapter connecting with the others as one continuous epic (a reflection of the comic books).

The script for the first chapter, which is essentially an origin story, has gone through a number of drafts, and last month, I was able to produce a shooting script. At this point, I'm gathering all of my resources together and looking forward to casting.

I'm looking to turn ink and paper into flesh and blood with a very high quality series, complete with veteran actors, spectacular locations, and finely detailed costumes and gadgets. Of course, the most critical aspect is the story, and I've worked very hard to fabricate a very real, very emotional world. I want to entertain you, but at the same time I want to make you believe in Batman.

I agree. If Sandy Collora's Dead End or John Fiorella's Grayson trailer had been hyped, I think fans would have expected too much and it would have been impossible to meet expectations. When Collora made his follow-up to Dead End with World's Finest, word got out, and I don't think it went over as well as his first piece.

I don't have a problem with wetting fans' apetites now and then, but to build and build upon hype over a project that isn't very far along is generally a bad idea.

Can I be honest here? The fan film thing might be losing a little steam... ESPECIALLY in the Batman department. We all know that it's been mentioned a dozen times now how we're all sorta tired of watching 15 year olds in Batman costumes using their basement as the batcave, but it's still true. This site definitely serves a purpose and cool topics still pop up or I wouldn't keep checking the forums... but it's more a meeting place for a bunch of friends (all of you guys seem to be a tight group). The fact is, while that's great... a lot of really bad FILMS (fan film or not, they are still films and should be entertaining to watch) are being hailed as great and overhyped. They might be awesome for the batman fans who just want to see Batman, but for the average film fan the first time they stop to check the films here at BFF.com may very well be the last time. It can leave a very bad taste in your mouth if you watch 6 shorts in a row with sound that can't be understood and people in awful costumes with awful acting. I'm not saying you guys should change a thing about the site... you all seem to love what you're doign so keep on doing it. I'm just saying that the novelty of hearing "Somebody made their own Batman film" wears off after you've seen 500 of them and they are all relatively the same thing.

I agree. There are many, many things I will not discuss about my project, because there are plenty of surprises planned. Besides, if there is something you're hoping for, and it falls through, then you're better keeping THAT to yourself, so no one is disappointed.

There may be bad films being made out there. However, there are those of us who are intending to make films that DO stand out. The best of the fan films are those that manage to do something unusual, or just tell a story really well.

No, I think there is a demand for good, independent film. Just ask the Star Trek fans out there!
