Ever Wondered What Batman: The Animated Series Intro Would Look Like Live-Action?

A film maker and YouTube user, Jeffjambanjo has brought the classic animated series intro to life.

Director Tomi Pietilä, along with cinematographer Teemu Saarinen, and 3D artist Tommi Tuominen have brought the opening theme from 1992's Batman: The Animated Series to life by doing it all with live actors and 3D modelling and they released it on their YouTube page. Take a look at how all their hard work paid off below. Sync them up if you like.

Here's the original opening from the Warner Bros. animated series.

What do you guys think? What other classic cartoon intros would you like to see in live action?

A truly masterful tribute to the dark knight.

I'm pretty sure Zack Snyder would do it a whole lot better with the same budget. The vid wasn't that great, to be honest

@master_thief: Snyder's issue isn't an ability to make pretty images. Homie needs an actually compotent well structured script to work with.

Saying it looks like a fan thing is a bit reductive and precise. It looks ok, lacks the high contrast imagery of the animated intro for obvious reasons but hey they wanted to remake it and they largely did so good job.

Not bad, but I just had to stop when Batman looked like the Nolan one. Adam West Bat mixed with the Nolan one.

Not going to lie, that was pretty badly done lol. Just because you have the technology to modify videos some doesn't mean you should.

@captain13 I had completely forgotten about Zeta Project thank you so much for the nostalgia!

@captain13: They'll need a Kickstarter of all that.

Not bad for a fan made film. That intro is a classic.

Let's not throw words around, that was not Classic. Just because something is nostalgic doesn't make it classic. Same as people calling The Beatles classic, they aren't.

On topic, they video started out decent and went downhill fast, it was quite awful overall.

that was good

that was alright. I would like to see The Batman tv series

First time I see someone saying that The Beatles isn't classic.

I don't wanna go too offtopic, but Classic is outstanding in a style or something unique. The Beatles started off as a Boy Band like One Direction or Backs Street Boys then started using their own instrument making pop songs. It's just nostalgic fags overhyping them, they are far from classics.

Not by the definition of classic, no they are not and no it isn't.

By definition they are, but you clearly disagree so let's leave at that.

Classic - of the first or highest quality, class, or rank.

The Beatles/Batman:TAS are neither first, highest quality, class or rank. Batman:TAS wasn't the first animation series, The Beatles wasn't the first boy/pop band.

Classic - Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.

It doesn't have to be the first and Classic doesn't mean the best. Let's agree to disagree okay?
