Batman Dark Knightfall

I wasn’t sure what to expect when browsing the refined corridors of Metafilter and happening upon a link to a stop-motion Batman short but it took me to a video that’s actually quite fun.

Fun and eerie. The photorealistic quality of the toys used by the filmmakers and the jerky stop-motion lend this six minute fight scene a strange quality, and don’t expect any actual story here. It is essentially a fight scene made with toys, nothing out of the ordinary, but there’s a keen sense of fun here – the Joker switch is a particular example.

It was directed by Derek Kwok and Henri Wong who are based in Hong Kong for their company Parabucks.

Here’s the vid, whack it up into full screen why don’t you?
