Silent Shadow of the Bat-Man

(YouTube link)

A 12 minute short depicting the origin of "The Bat-Man" and introducing his amazing skills and abilities... Bob Kane and Bill Finger drew on a lot of silent films to create Batman, and I've always wanted to give the story a try using silent film techniques. What with that whole copyright/waste of time thing, you'll have to settle for this collage. Here are the original influences re-arranged to tell Bruce Wayne's story and his crusade against crime.

A quick two day collage by Andre Perkowski. Drone music by Palker & Perkowski, an outtake from "The Vampire's Tomb" sessions.

These were the longest minutes of your life? What kind of action-packed thrill a minute internet-filled life must you be leading if a fun little piece like this is taking you away from it? And why harsh your buzz by bothering to complain about it? What a killjoy.

Imagine if you actually had to live in the 20s when films of someone in a chair were considered pretty gripping. You kids today with your movies and your discotheques.
