Dead Man’s Clown Shoes, Short Spoof, 2012
This is our entry for the Film4 Scene Stealer's Competition 2012. We had to reinterpret an iconic Film4 moment in under 2mins.
We chose Shane Meadows Dead Man's Shoes. As for the idea I think we were a little inspired by the release of The Dark Knight Rises. Also if you’re a fan of the Batman comic book you'll recall that in the Death in the Family (1988) storyline the Joker kills off Robin, this seemed to play a nice parallel with the characters in Dead Man's Shoes.
Hope you enjoy.
