I had a spec idea that I wanted to see to fruition. The only issue with it was that it would really only work if it featured Adam West. So I called him. And after reading the script, Adam wanted to see it to fruition, too.
I produced it through my old production company, lakespeed. Because it was spec, I was also the line producer, set designer, art department, location manager, permit puller, production department, PA, 2nd AD, 3rd AD, and craft service.
Development time – from the spark of the initial idea, to finding the Batmobile, to convincing Adam West to fly from Idaho to LA for the shoot, to having a broadcast-ready final product – took nine days.
Yup. Nine days.
Special thanks to Director, Editor, and friend Tim Kendall, Casting Director Liz Paulson, DP Florian Sadler, and First AD Brenton Covington.
For the record, Adam was not a spokesperson or affiliated with the featured product in any way.
RIP, good friend.
