This is a non-profit fan film being made exclusively for fun! I will supplement that by saying that Nightwing is the intellectual property of DC and Warner Brothers and they may stop us at any time. They released a statement in 2005 about their opinion of fan films.
WB released this quote prior to Comic Con 2005:
Warner Bros. wrote:"Warner Bros. definitely appreciates the enthusiasm and respect of its fans. We will continue to monitor the use of Warner Bros. properties as used in fan films. However, we will only consider taking action against such films that are either commercial in nature, are commercially exploited or otherwise engage in or depict inappropriate activity. Further, we will try to work with the comic book conventions, such as Comic-Con, to develop fan film screening programs that do not conflict with Warner Bros. rights in its properties. "
Once we receive funding we wil hit the ground running. We will start working on costumes and securing shooting locations and equipment as soon as possible. We must allow a decent amount of time fors editing and special effects. No set date as of yet but we should fully know within the coming month!
No, these items are being made exclusively for the Kickstarter as pledge "rewards". These are strictly being given out to raise funds for a non-profit*, fan-made* series. DC and Warner Brothers own the rights to Batman, Nightwing and all other characters being used and "selling" any products after the Kickstarter would be against the law! So if you want to get any of these great rewards then donate now! You won't get another chance!
