The Dave School class of December, 2004, under the direction of William "Proton" Vaughan, is working on what promises to be one of the school's most exciting final projects yet, a Batman-based short film.

Using 3D models of Art Asylum's (http://www.artasylum.com/) Mini-Mate Batman characters and sets designed with CG Lego building blocks, the students are creating large, densely-populated worlds inhabited by thousands of digital extras, including a ballroom scene and Gotham Square on New Year's Eve.

Voice casting includes the well-known talents of Adam West as Batman, Courtney Thorne-Smith as Catwoman, and Mark Hamill as the Joker. Students were able to listen in via speaker phone to the recording session, which took place in North Hollywood earlier this month. This was a truly fascinating experience, allowing them to hear real professionals at work. Additional voice talent is being cast at this moment.

This project represents The DAVE School's 3rd collaboration with toy designer Art Asylum, based in New York City, but it is the first time the school has worked with characters that are represented by Art Asylum toys currently in production.

Every DAVE School class works on an original short film in its final quarter ... The DAVE School is the school that makes movies!
