Video: Dramatic 'Batkid Begins' Trailer Relives Leukemia Survivor's Dream Day
By Clip Syndicate
Batkid is Miles Scott, a leukemia survivor who last year when he was 5 years old "saved Gotham" as part of his Make-a-Wish Foundation dream wish. Now, filmmaker Dana Nachman and Moving Train are completing a documentary to capture the ins and outs of Batkid's big day that brought thousands of people onto the makeshift Gotham streets in San Francisco to watch him thwart the Penguin and the Riddler. Titled Batkid Begins, the documentary needs help before it can debut. The project's team is trying to raise $100,000 to pay for aerial footage of San Francisco, a soundtrack, music licensing, editing and special effects. So far, people have donated more than $47,000 on Indiegogo, with 23 days left in the campaign.
