    Okay, the lowdown. Im currently close to finishing up principal photography on my fourth short film and first Batman-Related piece.
    My full-time job is as a 3-D artist but have completed a four year degree in film.

    Anyways enough of the speil, Over the course of the next few weeks I hope to keep updating this forum with my progress and look for the opinions of the members of the board as this is exactly who the film is for.

    The film itself is based exactly on Frank Millars script for Year One, and the Photography on Mazzuchellis Panels and Pencils.

    For some of the scenes (eg the bat flying through the window) you can expect top quality cg.

    Expect regular updates, heres a side to side comparison of the comic and some footage iv imported. Please bear in mind the no post production has been performed on these shots as yet.

    Gordon's moustache look a bit too fake, but I can see the passion you are putting in this project. Waiting to see some Batman scene.

    Looks cool, maybe not dark enough though, like try to do some interesting things with lighting in the Flass scene you posted. (I know you said you weren't done with the post on those frames).

    What are you shooting and editing with?

    Hehe, tis funny the huge change in the look of the actor with the moustache

    Heres a tiny, tiny update, just the first quicky test of one of the 3d scenes. This is about 30 minutes into a 5 hour job so its relatively unpolished

    [​IMG]

    Will have an update soon enough with the 3d opening scene, its something thats coming along really nicely, mapping in actual textures from the books ontop of models

    Anyone got any opinions on this guy as a possible Bruce Wayne.
    He's a bit young a 24 (I imagine bruce being older in year one) and a small bit thin, but that can be hidden with under clothes

    Looks younger than 24, and I believe Bats was 25 in Year One so 24 isn't a problem. (as long as he looks it)

    More 3d updates,
    this is for a pan by of the train station in the opening scene. Its looking great in motion mixing the 2d maps onto the 3d model. Am obviously still populating the model as its in its relatively early stages
