Televising Hamlet: the choice of technical format
Producer John Wyver talks us through the advantages of using the high definition red camera system for filming Hamlet. He explains it gives a similar quality to 35mm film, but at a lower cost. The great detail visible in using high definition has meant that costume and make-up have to be of a higher standard as flaws in them are much more easily visible. Features extracts from the televised version of the 2008 RSC production of Hamlet.
