About this film

The Haywood City Learning Centre and Creative Partnerships Stoke on Trent provided an exciting opportunity for pupils and teachers in a one-day workshop. After researching shakespeare's works on the Internet, each group had to act out their chosen piece and sell their ideas to the rest of the group.

Three Arts Practitioners from Infinite Arts developed workshops for students and teachers to engage in. Stop frame animation, theatre make-up and music/audio teams worked with the artists, while a documentary team filmed and interviewed the participants about their learning experience. The animations, images, music and audio were then edited together to produce a 60 second film.
