LookLabs Staff Pick - The Joker

Nov 17, 2019

If you haven't seen the Joker yet, make a commitment to do so, it's well worth your time. Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks -- the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.

The story is wonderfully twisted and intriguing and the emotional look really adds to the dark tone of the movie. Lucky for you, recreating this look is easily done with SpeedLooks. If you combine two LUTs - Blue Intense and Big at approximately 50% value each and you will be extremely close. All that will be left is a minor tweak to set you solidly into the look of the Joker. Combining SpeedLooks is a great way to create your own fresh new look or, emulate a look you want for your next film.

Here's the trailer for The Joker - the look is really remarkable.
