Looking Forward to a Possible Documentary Feature Film about Batman: The Animated Series


Yesterday, I shared a link and posted the following to Facebook. This is simply me supporting a project I’d love to see happen. I myself am backing the project, and this post is totally me, Walt–unsponsored, un-requested/etc. The only thing I receive from this is the satisfaction of doing what little I can from my little corner of the internet here to shine some attention on a worthy project!


Did you discover Batman thanks to the ’90s animated series? Do you fondly recall the early to mid-’90s with shows like Batman and X-Men? Have you enjoyed their successors–Superman, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited… even the modern live action films?

Is Kevin Conroy the voice of "your" Batman? Mark Hamill the voice of "your" Joker?

So much came from this brilliant series–its animation, its writing, its voice talent. And the folks behind the series are mostly still around–they’re still alive and many still active in the industry…and able to be involved in a project like this. Information, anecdotes, recollections…they’re not just names and written quotes in history texts or bland wiki entries somewhere online.

Phil’s got a documentary lined up to cover this show, with interviews from many involved firsthand on having brought a key vision of Batman to the screen with influence lasting to this very day.

I’m not generally one to "push" crowdfunding ventures but this one that I’m certainly personally behind. Phil does awesome work, and this would be an awesome one to see able to be made.

If you’d consider checking it out–don’t just take my wording for it…visit the Kickstarter page (link is in the comments), see it in Phil’s own words, and think about "backing" this, even if only for a few dollars. Toss in $3-4–about the cost of a cup of coffee on the go(???)–and you’ll be part of this documentary happening. And you’ll probably spend more time watching it than that cup of coffee would have lasted.

If you opt to click the link above (or click the image below), it’ll take you to Kickstarter and you can click around within the campaign page for the project.

As of my grabbing the screenshot, there are 78 backers and $7,066 raised of a $10,000 "goal."

The way Kickstarter works is, you "pledge" whatever amount, and then at the END of the campaign–funds are collected…assuming, of course, the campaign met its goal. It’s an all-or-nothing situation: either it’s funded, or it’s not. You are NOT charged immediately–you’re only charged at the end and then only if the campaign met its goal.

But you have to actually pledge in order for that to happen.


I’d love to see this come to fruition. That’s why I’m posting about it…I don’t think I’ve ever posted something like this, supporting/endorsing a Kickstarter thing, if that helps show I’m not just blowing smoke on the matter.

If you’re reading this…I’d recommend checking out the campaign, and if you’re interested and able, back it.

If you want to check out Phil’s other work, his site is at https://retailsunshine.com/.

And for another documentary he self-produced recently, you can find Sparking Sunshine on his YouTube channel.


And with that…I’m shutting up for now.

I have several other posts planned for this week, but "real life" is already rearing its head, so whether I make it through another week of "(week)daily" posts or not remains to be seen.
