FILM 255 - Seven-Minute Shakespeare


FDR: HA
Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2014 and alternate years.

Prerequisite: Completion of the FDR FW and HL requirements. After intensive collective reading and discussion of Shakespeare plays in the first week, students organize into four-person groups with the goal of producing a seven-minute video version of one of the plays by the end of the term, using only the actual text of the play. The project requires full engagement and commitment, and includes tasks such as editing and selecting from the text to produce the film script, creating storyboards, casting and recruiting actors, rehearsing, filming, editing, adding sound tracks and effects. This spring's plays may include The Tempest, The Comedy of Errors, and Measure for Measure. To see last year's films of Macbeth and The Taming of the Shrew, click on this link. Dobin.
