After experimenting for the past two and a half years with trailers and test footage, filmmakers Luke Watson and David Sartin have decided to “get serious” about their Red Hood Retcon web series. To that end, they’ve launched a $20,000 Kickstarter campaign to transform the fan project into “a legitimate web series.”
A glance at some of the earlier trailers and clips shows just what the two have been able to accomplish without any real budget. But with $20,000, they plan to tell the story of Jason Todd’s return to Gotham after a lengthy absence to investigate the disappearance of Batman.
“Our story begins many years after Jason Todd’s resurrection,” the filmmakers explain in their campaign video. “This is going to be a much older and experienced version of Jason Todd. In fact, our story is completely original, and has never been told.”
