The Killing Joke is a 15 minute suspense/fiction short film about a mysterious woman that finds a red balloon tied up to a curious little box on an eery derelict street. Using classic elements of suspense and working within a seventies aesthetic, 'The Killing Joke' is an action packed film that pays homage to some of the horror movies from that era.
The piece was shot during four intense days of filming in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires. The micro budget production was shot using just two 7d canon cameras. The composition and CGI effects for 'The Killing Joke' required months of 'invisible' digital retouching to create the panoramic, yet claustrophobic atmosphere that pervades throughout the movie.
The Film editor was Sabrina Mottino.
Sebastián López wrote and directed the story, and was also responsible for all the impressive post and composition work.
Colin Devlin created the Original Soundtrack, working from his home studio in LA he collaborated on the project with Sebastian from it's inception, creating a wonderful striking symmetry between sound and image.This is the second collaboration for Sebastian and Colin, the first being an action packed trailer created for a fictitious movie called 'Vertical' that went viral on the net, creating a serious buzz for the young director.
Actors Gustavo Marzo and Clarisa Staracci Worked together to portray the intense characters seen on screen.
The Killing Joke was a work of entire dedication and effort.
Lights went out in the backstage area during the last clip of the interview. Tal Shpantzer's quick draw thumb on the iso and hot shoe mounted Lite Panel LED saves the shot!
