Filming Shakespeare

Shakespeare on Screen

We’ve taken our old Images of Shakespeare pack and updated it for the new 2010 specification requirements.

As the introductory resource in the FILMING SHAKESPEARE series, SHAKESPEARE ON SCREEN covers a range of plays with film extracts from Hamlet, Henry V, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, Richard III, Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night.

The materials in the two-disc pack provide teachers with a flexible yet structured approach to teaching Shakespeare and film.

Featuring a stimulating collection of specially selected film extracts on DVD, accompanied by explanatory teachers’ notes and step-by-step activities on CD-ROM, the resource is designed to refresh your classroom teaching.

Contents include:

  • Adaptations - a comparison of different filmmakers’ approaches to the text and an examination of two different interpretations of the same sequence
  • Language - an exploration of Shakespeare’s language looking at monologues, soliloquies, the Chorus, prologues, rhetoric and rhythm in the written text and on film
  • Imagery – an analysis of the way filmmakers have interpreted the imagery of the play text through filmic language
  • Genre - an exploration of the conventions of the different genres, their representations and development on film
  • Audience - a study of the repackaging of Shakespeare on film for different audiences including consideration of social, cultural and historical contexts

DVD and CD-ROM £45 incl. P&P. Price includes full site license.
