The Evolution of Batman Films Part 4
Director Tim Burton was out, and now it was Joel Schumacher's turn to helm the next Batman movie. The result was Batman Forever. Arriving in 1995, it marked a return to more of a lighter, campier style, similar to the 60's TV show. Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones played the baddies, each competing to see who could chew more of the scenery. Despite grumblings by comic fans, the movie made a ton of money, and Warners decided to go all in on with this campy style. As we'll see, this proved absolutely disastrous.
Jeff Victor studied art/design at the University of Kansas and has worked as an illustrator ever since. Some of his clients include Cartoon Network, Nick Jr. Animation, Warner Bros Animation, ABCMouse, BBC/Create Media, National Geographic Kids, East West Animation, Playstation, HBO, DMS Films/Academy Awards, IFC, Bicycle Casino, K&Company, Hallmark Cards, and Universal Studios: Hollywood.
Jeff recently finished a seven year stint as a designer for Nickelodeon Games and is currently working as a freelance illustrator.
