There is no shortage of stunning photos taken on the set of Joker, thanks to director Todd Phillips. The filmmaker would regularly post teasers for the film while it was still in production. But what was the last day of shooting like? Not surprisingly, it was an emotional milestone for Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix.

Phillips recently posted a series of images on his official Instagram account and it offers an emotional look at what happened on the last day of production. Check it out below.

"All of these were taken on our last day of shooting. It was bittersweet for sure— while it felt great to be done, we also had such an intense and unique experience— and then suddenly it just ends. What a ride this film has been and it all culminated with watching Joaquin walk up on that stage this weekend. Thanks again to the entire cast and crew. And especially the fans, for seeing through all the noise and showing up," Phillips wrote before adding the hashtags #joker and #illtellyouwhatyouget.

Perhaps the best part of the pictures is seeing the bond between Phillips and Phoenix. After all, the two worked hard together to make sure Arthur Fleck is properly portrayed in the film. It's also a touching treat for fans who were truly moved by Joker.

Phoenix has already won several awards for his performance in Joker. He recently took home the Best Actor Award at the 92nd Academy Awards.
