How to Recreate the Look of ‘Joker’ on a Small Budget1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Todd Phillips’ Joker was a massive box office and critical success. Part of the reason it was such a hit was that it really focused on the reality of the world. Subtle colors were used to accentuate mood and tone, and the end result feels like a dystopian Gotham City ruled by chaos and crime.
The movie’s budget was close to $100 million.
Considering we all don’t have that kind of cash to burn, is there a way to achieve the look of Joker on an indie budget?
The short answer is “yes.”
