Batman: The Bloody Valentine has just officially been released online! Our short film will show the dark and twisted love affair that the Joker has with Batman and how we will go to any length to get the bats attention.
Here at K&K we have always been fascinated by the love hate relationship between the villain and hero and our short film aims to convey that in all it's gory detail.
With the design of the Batman we have gone for a combination of Arkham Asylum and Origins, which we think you guys will love. We've also tried to make him as brutal and efficient as possible when it comes to his fighting style. He has no time to mess around, so he smashes his way through his opponents.
Our Joker is very much an amalgam of the Killing Joke (our favorite Bats graphic novel) and the Arkham Origins game. Nicholas really brought a psychotic feel to the character and a unpredictability that we hope hardcore joker fans can appreciate.
We were very lucky to have some great actors working with us, who were very dedicated to the roles, both physically and mentally.
Joe Galiina, who plays our Batman, put on 15lbs just to get the physically imposing look that we wanted. Nicholas Anscombe sat through several hours of make up to be transformed into the Joker and has given a really creepy performance. Patrick Girts voiced the Joker and went for the Mark Hamill style from Batman the Animated series as that is still our favorite joker of all time!
We hope you all enjoy it and if you find out more about how we shot this film, then check out the behind the scenes video below. You can also check out more of our work at http://www.kandkfilms.co.uk/
