UPDATE: Kickstarter Planned For BATKID BEGINS Documentary

<font color="red">UPDATE:</font> Kickstarter Planned For BATKID BEGINS Documentary

We all remember the heartwarming story of 5-year-old, Miles Scott, a recovering leukemia patient who inspired the residents of San Francisco to transform their town into Gotham City. Well, his story isn't over.

Filmmaker Dana Nachman, is launching a Kickstarter campaign on July 15th titled Batkid Begins. Thanks to Make-A-Wish, San Francisco was turned into Gotham City for one day, as Miles battled a few Batman rogues and saved the day as Batkid. Nachman captured most of the proceedings but she's turning to kickstarter to complete the documentary, which needs "a soundtrack, graphics and animation, aerial shots of San Francisco and other special effects" to truly complete the project, according to The Wrap. The finish product's proceeds will all go to charity, the Batkid Fund, which benefits charities of the Scott family's choosing.



UPDATE: Producers from the documentary have informed me that they'll actually be using Indiegogo, not Kickstarter for the crowdfunded campaign.  Also, the project will be at SDCC on Sunday in RM 8 at 10:30AM.

Dana Nachman (documentary filmmaker, KTF Films) unveils her latest project Batkid: The Film, which chronicles the making of the overnight international phenomenon that is Batkid. The panel features Patricia Wilson (CEO of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and mastermind behind Batkid), Eric Johnston (Batkid's adult Batman sidekick and inventor), Mike Jutan (Batkid's nemesis, The Penguin, and Lucasfilm engineer), and Sue Graham Johnston (The Damsel in Distress and VP of operations, Oracle). Join this dynamic team for a Q&A session moderated byChris Taylor (deputy editor, Mashable).
