About The Grin of Evil - A Joker Series

The Grin of Evil
is a fan-made (non-profit) web series that aims to explore the Joker's philosophy from his peculiar point of view and away from his faithful adversary.
It's a journey through what lies behind the jokes and laughs: each chapter offers a different approach of the character, who will be portrayed in various styles. A criminal genius for some, insane for others, the only thing that is clear is that you don't joke with the Joker. On the contrary, we should take him very seriously.

As fans, our main interest is to pay tribute to the characters that made a difference in our childhood and teenage years. The idea of bringing these characters and their universe to life from the vignettes is exhilarating. We feel committed to develop a creative challenge that would bring out the best of each artist, making it personal to us and to the viewers as well.

Aesthetic Approach
Exactly as if you were reading a comic book. Our aim is to renew the art in every chapter so we can cover as many versions of the characters and their environment as possible.

Costumes and Makeup
Don’t worry we got that covered. As devoted fans, we have an entire collection of Joker costumes which includes shoes, spats, pants, suspenders, shirts, vests, ribbons, coats, gloves, cufflinks and even some squirting flowers.

We, Carnival Crab Films, are a film production company located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is our wish that The Grin of Evil will establish us as a proven production company, and that it will attract fans all around the world who could enjoy this and other future projects.

The clown prince of crime will be played by Alejandro Fanzago aka AlexWorks, a special effects makeup artist, filmmaker and character actor who’s also codirecting the project. He must be a little bit crazy to do it all, but hey, in Arkham they say that helps!

The lady who will wear the harlequin's diamonds will be Anne Valmont aka Andariel Creations.

We'll do our best to make you proud, Mark!

Codirecting the project is Juan Francisco Otaño, who has recently ended his first independent film Rebobinado.

For the last two years our team has been working to make this teaser possible.

Risks & Challenges
As you may know we are not native English speakers, but as this project is intended to be entirely in English, we accepted the challenge of working with professional translators, native US assistants and friends who kindly agreed to help us.

Other Ways You Can Help
If you cannot help us by funding this, you can still spread the word! We humbly ask you to share this link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or/and any other social network of your liking.

Thank you SO much!

Note: Regarding the legal aspects of the series
This is a 100% NON-PROFIT fan-made web series. Donations will exclusively fund the series.
Additionally, Warner Bros. (owner of DC Comics/Entertainment) issued this statement concerning fan films in 2004, which has been their policy ever since. We strictly adhere to it: "Warner Bros. definitely appreciates the enthusiasm and respect of its fans. We will continue to monitor the use of Warner Bros. properties as used in fan films. However, we will only consider taking action against such films that are either commercial in nature, are commercially exploited or otherwise engage in or depict inappropriate activity."

0% complete
In order to shoot one episode we will need to cover the cost of its production.

Our film will be 100% non-profit, made of the love we feel for the characters and their fictional universe. We hope you share that love too!
The money will go ONLY into making this film. Here's a list with some examples:

Equipment: Cameras, lighting, sound, and any other technical requirements needed.
Locations: The story needs specific locations that meet our aesthetic approach.
Transportation and food: Gotham is a big city and food always brings out a smile!
Post-production: Essential in every film to accomplish the best results.
