After months of planning, the story of Batkid finally became a reality on November 15th and took San Francisco and the world by storm. The Batkid adventure was one of, if not, the largest undertakings of the organization, and certainly received the most attention once the story went viral.
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 Scott. 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.
