Batman Infinity is a remediation of the origin story of DC’s superhero; Batman. The project was part of the final assignment for a narrative design course at SFU. Our team, which consisted of four members, wanted to tell a “what-if” story where Joker intervened during an important moment of Batman’s life; the day when his parents were murdered. We shot the video in a first person perspective of the Joker, only showing his hands as he inserts himself in Batman’s history.
My task was brainstorming the initial narrative concept with the group, plotting out the different scenes in storyboard format with drawings drawn by one of the members (Marco Yuen) dressing up one of my group members (Darren MacPhail) as the Joker, setting up and directing the camera shots and finally, adding sounds to the final video in post-production. This final project involved a lot of work from the concept phase to post production as I was involved in every step of the process. Even though it was a demanding project, the opportunity to incorporate different design skills was worthwhile.
