NOW FUNDING! The Oath: A Batman Fan-Film

Crowdfunding is LIVE on Indiegogo for The Oath, our upcoming Batman fan film set in the world of Tim Burton’s Batman (1989)! Check out these amazing perks, with more to come!

Locations are locked and the cast is ready!  After months of pre-production and planning, cameras are rolling on The Oath in November 2021, and we’d love your help!

Set in the world of Tim Burton’s Batman (1989), The Oath is a non-profit, fan-produced, short film to be released (for free) by Kaotica Studios on YouTube in 2022. 

Love Batman ’89 just as much as we do? Take a trip back to the mean streets of Gotham, when “the Bat” was just a rumor chased by reporter Alexander Knox, and the city was powerless against crime bosses like Carl Grissom. Do you know Bob the Goon’s last name? Then this is the movie for you!

Produced by Kaotica Studios, the team behind the award-winning short, The Killer of Grassy Ridge, Red Eagle-1, and Farragut Forward, The Oath is a labor of love… created BY Batman fans, FOR Batman fans!

This is a non-profit project. Every dollar raised goes toward our production costs, including hotels and travel for cast/crew, permits, insurance, props, wardrobe, location costs, and more. Select one of our awesome perks and help bring this project to life!


We’ve assembled an all-star cast! Jerry Morgan has worked on the feature film Sledgehammer, the short film Piece of Mind, and the Showtime mini-series The Good Lord BirdOz Keenum comes to us fresh off his work on the feature film Recollection. Chris Konke joins us from his work on shows such as Homeland and House of Cards, and Guillermo Mejía will don the cape as the Caped Crusader himself! We might even have a cameo or two up our sleeve!

A lifelong Batman fan, The Oath is written, shot, and directed by Johnny K., whose first film, The Killer of Grassy Ridge, was selected for more than 50 festivals worldwide, winning Best U.S. Short Film, Best Debut, Best Director, Best Cinematography, and more.

Every single donation is sincerely appreciated, and thanks for your help to make this dream project happen! Cameras roll in November 2021 and production updates will follow!
