About this film

Our film is a stop-frame clay animation, with modernised setting and costume, but Shakespeare's original dialogue (abridged). We discussed the details of scenery and models at length. the most time consuming part of the production was building the models. None of the young people had done animation before.

Your reviews

Great video, loved the models and the spookiness. Thought the voices of the characters were great!

That was really good, I really liked it. Well done. The witches were very well moled and warted.

I love the sudden appearance of the hoodies and caps! That's great. Colours, sound, light. My favorite Shakespeare play. Well done.

This is most certainly the best ive seen so far - well done =)

Dr. Peter Blair
This is excellent - platicine performances that Morph would be proud of, and spoken performances that suggest understanding of the words. Gives a real sense that animation has encouraged the children to engage closely with Shakespeare.
