Miles Scott is a cancer survivor who is in now in remission. His wish was to be “Batkid”, a sidekick of the eponymous comic book superhero Batman, the subject of books, radio, television, and films. Once the request went out, THOUSANDS of volunteers, city officials, businesses and supporters rallied to turn San Francisco, California into “Gotham City” – the fictional home city of Batman. Miles’ wish was one of the largest and most elaborate Make-A-Wish projects ever staged.
Hitting the streets in San Francisco with a police escort they filmed caper after caper in real time in order to keep the experience authentic for five year old Miles. There were no second takes. The characters, the coordination team and everyone involved had to make it great the first time. All of the cameras had to be in place, and all the special effects including the pyrotechnics had to be done live once and only once.
What an AMAZING thing for everyone to pitch in and makes this child’s wish come true!
