Heath Ledger Directed The Joker’s Home Videos

Joker Home Video

Warner Bros.

Scattered throughout The Dark Knight are videos of the Joker doing demented things. They come when he has kidnapped an important figure, and needs to explain the next phase in his plot. As it turns out, Heath Ledger directed those clips in order to ensure that they were from the Joker’s perspective.

Although Christopher Nolan oversaw and supervised the process, he was so happy with the clips that came from Heath that he barely touched them. Heath’s understanding of the character even extended to how the character might direct a totally frantic homemade video. That’s when you know you’ve gone as deep as you can into a character.
