Re: Batcowl advice

Re: Batman Easter Eggs in "On My Way" - Music Video

Absolutely beautiful video guys! Kudos on a great song, great execution of that song, and then on choice of shots, CGI, and editing. Brilliant! Some Easter Eggs were obvious, and some not so much. Here is my list: 1) Bronson Cavern 2) 1955 Lincoln Futura 3) Hairpin turn shot recreation 4) 14 mile si...
