Becoming Batman - Episode One

With "The Dark Knight" doing so well at the Box Office this year, it's imminent release on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK (December 8th), and high expectations for the Oscars on 22nd February 2009, I thought it would be appropriate to begin posting episodes of a brilliant little series that began a couple of weeks ago on YouTube.

Entitled "Becoming Batman", it features a man that decides to take on the task of becoming Batman in order to protect his village (I'm assuming Chalfont from the locations)after reading a headline in the Buckinghamshire Advertiser that asks for someone to take up the challenge. All they ask for is a man that is "bored, wealthy and in the knowledge of the martial arts". As he is a "little bored" and can't be bothered to go bowling, this man decides he is the man for the job.

It is wonderfully filmed, with a good filter throughout to give a darker image and great use of the hand-held camera to create a bigger action impact at times. The use of The Dark Knight score also just helps build the epic feel.

Each episode will follow the challenges he faces in order to become Batman.

However, just to give you a taster for what is to come, please watch the video below:
