Batman Documentary “Legends Of The Knight” Coming To SDCC

batmanHere is something that I am happy to spread more knowledge of, as I have been following this project for some time.  I know I am not wrong in saying that we at Why So Blu are big Batman fans and look forward to future adventures involving him, let alone rewatching and possibly even rediscovering things about the Caped Crusader that continue to entertain us.  Legends of the Knight is an upcoming documentary film that is focused on how Batman has been a hero for many people in real life.  Filmmaker Brett Culp has set out to make a film that goes over the cultural impact that Batman has had over the year and thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, the film will be released to the public.  Portions of the documentary film Legends of the Knight will debut at a SDCC panel on Friday, July 29 at 10:30am in room 26AB.  The independent, not-for-profit film explores the inspirational impact of Batman and the power of heroic storytelling.  Read on to learn more about this project/event.

The Trailer for the film can be viewed at: http://youtu.be/sf_7IsvXV-U, or on the official website: www.WEareBATMAN.com. Since its debut, the Trailer has over 160,000 views on YouTube.

The funding campaign (http://kck.st/W4yO4a) on Kickstarter met its initial goal of $31,850 within 48 hours and closed at $54,820.

“Batman has become contemporary mythology,” producer/director Brett Culp said. “We want to show how enduring stories like this shape us. Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference. Together, we are Batman.”

Over the past year, Culp and his team have filmed stories in 15 cities, recording 64 interviews. He has captured the stories of individuals whose love of the Dark Knight has inspired them to overcome devastating obstacles, to motivate and encourage young people, and to contribute to their communities.
