- The Dark Knight Theatrical Trailer
Yes, I have made my own AMV of The Dark Knight, which EVERYBODY has done. Still, since Ive had it sitting on the shelf for over a year now I thought I should just finish the damn thing and be happier for it.
I knew that I wanted to make an AMV trailer for a big Hollywood blockbuster movie, and yes Dark Knight was my first choice. Still, it was going to be either this or ChronoBoy II, mostly because I had all of Chrono Crusade but not all of The Big O. I think I made the right choice for the time, though I still wanted to get this idea off my chest. This is also my first experiment with rotoscoping, which I guess could have turned out worse.
We've used all kinds of animes with this trailer from Naruto to Death Note to Evangelion, but I guess nobody thought to use The Big O. Its directly inspired by Batman and follows many of the same themes, plus the footage matched pretty well. Come on, Alan Gabriel as the Joker?!? Hell yes!
