I was initially a little hesitant to bring up some of the Nightwing content I have seen on Youtube. Don't really know why; I just was. The truth is that there is a ton of fan-generated material out there. I wouldn't even attempt to run down the entirety of it. What I can do is tell you some of the best stuff that I have seen. The following live action material features a lot of really well done action sequences and are all very different interpretations of the character:
Nightwing: The Series by Ismahawk - (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKYGZbsY88fwAGBTgcBCJ0IUqHJqNO_bG) – These guys put a lot of time and effort into creating a really interesting, pretty long story. The costumes are great and Danny Shepherd actually looks a lot like you would expect Dick to look in real life. They've also got a few other superhero action shorts that I dig.
Super Power Beatdown: Episode 5 by Bat in the Sun - (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXrjTXD5L3s&list=PL6F730F85FA7C34C2&index=15) Want to watch Nightwing beat the holy hell out of Gambit? I did. And ooh boy, did he! The whole Super Power Beatdown series is fantastic. Bat in the Sun also produces Jason David Frank's personal web series and the fairly hilarious “The Waiting Room.” Their fan film Batman: City of Scars is maybe one of the best Batman movies ever, without exaggeration!
Grayson: Earth One by P3Series - (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIjfdlF-8-Q&index=1&list=PLeVLI-UD3DShbVsnFTXLttLpzq4sj0gnd) This is a really different take on the character. As the title suggests, this really interesting story sets Dick in a new context as envisioned through DC's Earth One graphic novel series lens.
Nightwing: Prodigal by Brady Roberts - (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTe5CM6OmNE&list=PLztEOELzRZYc6mUEVZerjZCIKz56lkbtr) I have to tell you off the bat, this series doesn't have the most impressive costume work; good but not great. However, the acting is pretty decent. The story is also pretty good and fairly extensive due to its multiple seasons.
The last video I will mention here is not a fan film at all, it's actually an action figure customizer's review of a Nightwing figure he made as a commission. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpBz76SL6h4) The main reason I decided to include it on this list is because I thought the work was so impressive that it reignited my interest in collecting action figures. I don't have the extra collateral to buy a custom figure right now, but I have bought a couple of the better looking mass-produced Nightwing figures that came out in the last few years and I have plans to get a few more. I also happen to know that when we do have the dough, my wife is fully intent upon getting me custom figures of Nightwing, the Flash, and Black Canary! I'm super pumped about that and I'll make sure to post any news on that front when things start moving.
Like I said this is only the tip of the iceberg. As I understand it, there are now more videos on Youtube than any person would be able to watch in several lifetimes, even if that was all they ever did from birth until they died! Lots of cats… Anyway, if you're a fan, check these guys' work out. I promise you'll find something to like.
