BATKID BEGINS! Documentary about 5yr old Leukemia Survivor Miles Scott

Last November, with the support of family, strangers, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Miles was transformed into Batkid and called upon to save Gotham City (aka San Francisco) from impending doom.

What was anticipated to be an event with 200-300 in attendance quickly grew into a city-wide phenomenon that captured the spirits and imaginations of 25,000 people who lined the streets to cheer Batkid on. This magical event not only swept the nation, but resonated so widely that Batkid’s heroics were seen by nearly 2 billion people across 117 countries.

To make BATKID BEGINS superhero-sized, Nachman is lining up big-name musicians, animators, and visual effects professionals, all working at reduced rates in the name of Batkid, and bringing the post-production price tag to $100,000. With that fundraising goal, Nachman is turning to fans around the world to bring Batkid to the big screen. “The story of Batkid is one of incredible generosity and positivity, where people said, ‘Yes!’ to each other for a day. If we can get people who were touched by Batkid behind our project, the spirit of the day will live on forever.”

By supporting the crowdfunding campaign at, fans can become a part of Batkid Begins. Nachman will be adding supporters’s names in the credits of the film, offering private screenings, an invitation to join the crew in post-production, and the chance to join the whole team at the film’s premiere.
