Behind the Scenes Magic for The People’s Joker
The People’s Joker is a queer coming of age Joker origin story, written, directed by and starring the multitalented Vera Drew. This independent film features the work of some 200 independent artists across the globe.
I was delighted to get to contribute some original video art animation for a psychedelic sequence in the film. Stay tuned at ThePeoplesJoker.com for news on the upcoming release.
After speaking with Vera and reading her deeply personal and surreal script, themes of chaos, color, and rebirth came to mind. I set out to create one of my most immersive and layered pieces to date – further exploring my own themes of repetition and re-sampling.
The foundation of the work is built on repurposed vintage explainer videos on the functions of various parts of the body from the 1940s.
