About this film

In English, students were studying The Taming of the Shrew, and in Media they have to produce a video, so the two activities merged perfectly for the 60 Second Challenge. We did three 60 second pieces to cover the whole play and get all 17 students involved. This is part one, Perfect Match, involving promises and match-making between sisters Bianca and Kat and friends Henry and Pete.

Your reviews

Suzi popstar
I think it should be a better storyline but was excellent

I think that it was alright, but the filming was a bit rubbish.

great, and well edited

Simon Dingwall
Hard to keep the plot here, but I think this is more down to me being unfamiliar with the play more than anything. It was very proffesional, and great acting, but not quite enough action. About 7.5/10.

Bob Jakason
The plot was noticeable, but in my opinion there was not enough action for my taste, and there was too much dialogue.

Nicola Boyes
It wasn't very easy to follow, it would have helped if the speach was louder...oh and why was it filmed in a toilet?!?!

Steffi Mustard
I didn't really understand the story and it was hard to hear what was going on. Apart from this it was ok.

A different style of play!! Good on that fact!! however i couldn't really understand what they were saying!!

I didn't understand this at all and it was confusing but good acting though

Dominic Smith
This was OK, but I thought that the setting could have been a bit better,- not the public toilets

Rory Coe
Very good but used foul and abusive language. Why film in a toilet.

This was good, a little hard to hear at times but otherwise alright!

Seb Murphy
Why film it in a toilet?

There is some good acting in this film.

It's ok, but I can't really comment as I don't know much about this particular play. Looked very interesting, though.
