Fan promos (such as the poster above) have proliferated for all of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman movies, and with the imminent release of his third and final film featuring the character, we’ve seen more fan-created videos and posters than ever. People love to tinker with Nolan’s footage, and his portrayal of characters in the DC Universe.
Now Warner Bros. and DC are offering enterprising editors a chance to make the leap from fan editors to official advertisers. The ‘Imported from Gotham City’ campaign offers a variety of video and audio assets from The Dark Knight Rises, which fans can edit into their own 25-second TV spot. Christopher Nolan will choose the winner, and the creator of the winning spot gets a trip to the New York City premiere of the film.
More details are below.
Here’s what Imported from Gotham City has to say:
