A Gotham Fairytale – Short Film


“A Gotham Fairytale” is author and illustrator Mauricio Abril’s original Batman story done as an animatic set to Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia.” Composed of over 200 black and white illustrations, it depicts the dark imagination of a little girl as she’s listening to her grandmother tell her a bedtime fairytale set in Gotham. As Abril states during the credits, this project is a personal labor of love and not intended for commercial use. It is a tribute to the spirit of the Batman mythology and the awesomeness of the music of Muse.
