Before we talk about your new Batman-projects, and even though we have talked about this before [click here], do bring us up to speed: Your brand-new Batman: Dante - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Batman: Dante is my attempt at Batman. Simple as that. I've always wanted to try my hand at the Dark Knight, but never really had the resources to do him right. Until now at least. I came up with the script for Batman: Dante back in 2010, turning Batman into a horror character was always fascinating to me. And when I learned that John Carpenter was once attached to direct what became the Tim Burton film, I knew I had to give it a go. And after six years, the elements needed for Batman: Dante finally fell into place and I made it happen.

 

You're presently planning to do two more Batman-fanmovies, Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar - so what are those about, and will they be at all linked to Batman: Dante?

 

They are in league with Batman: Dante. They are narrative pieces told by people who witnessed Batman in action. Each story is from a different perspective with its own unique message. I won't spoil what the plots to each are, but I will say they are as inspirational as Batman: Dante.

 

Batman: Dante presented the Batman as a rather fierce force of nature, a genuine threat - so will that portrayal at all shift in Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar, and will those movies dig deeper into his actual backstory?

 

These movies are not about Batman or who he really is. You won't see him take off the mask, you won't see him chilling with Alfred. He's the solution to the problem. That's it. It's essentially how much of Batman anyone would see if they met him socially. He's not going to talk to you. He won't take you back to the Batcave (unless you're his girlfriend). He's just there to terrorize evil doers and protect the innocent.

 

What were your actual inspirations for writing Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar, and is either of them based on any particular Batman comicbook stories?

 

None of the stories, Dante, Geoffrey or Edgar are based off of anything in the Batman canon, at least to my knowledge. The closest comparison I can give, is that one episode in the animated series when the group of kids all tell stories about what they think Batman is like.

 

Of all the filmmakers I know, there's not one who has made half as many (high quality) fan movies as you have ... but you're diving into the Batman-world only now - so why is that?

 

Because I pride myself on doing a good job and before now, I did not have a Batsuit I was proud of. The last thing you want to do is do something sub par. That's just a no no in my book.

 

What can you tell us about the intended look and feel of your movies?

 

Imagine a John Carpenter movie with serious anger issues. That!

 

Anything you can tell us about your intended cast yet, and why exactly these people?

 

Zack Santiago will return as Batman. He is an amazing cosplayer and thoroughly nailed what I wanted for Batman. Plus he has all the moves locked. As for everyone else, I haven't begun casting yet as we are still trying to acquire the budget. Which of course, is always a pain.

 

You also want to have the Batmobile in Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar, right? So how might that work on a limited budget?

 

That is a good question. I will let you know once we acquire the funds to rent one. If you happen to not see a Batmobile in the next two films... then you know we didn't make our goal.

 

As far as I know, you're currently still raising funds for Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar - so do talk about your campaign for a bit!

It's a GoFundMe page - www.gofundme.com/batmanblinky. Basically, every dollar counts. So if someone wants to donate 5, 10 or even 20 dollars, it will get us closer to our goal. So far we've had some donations from some very amazing people and it's been a real blessing.

 

Once your funds are raised, what's the schedule - and any idea when and where those films might be released onto the general public yet?

 

Filming will probably begin anywhere from a week to 2 weeks after we reach our goal. It would all just come down to scheduling. I usually tend to release my films immediately after that. So figure we reach our goal by the end of the month, I will release Geoffrey sometime at the beginning of August and Edgar about a week or so later. But again, that is all pending we reach our goal in a timely manner.

 

Any future projects beyond Batman: Geoffrey and Batman: Edgar you'd like to talk about?

 

At this moment in time, I don't have any. I think I am just meant to do this trilogy with Batman and that's all. But things always change. So who knows.

 

Your/your movies' website, Facebook, GoFundMe, whatever else?

 

You can learn about me, as always at www.facebook.com/blinky500 and watch my films at www.youtube.com/blinky500, and if you wish to help support my Batman project, www.gofundme.com/batmanblinky.
