Walking Cities: Shakespeare Lives
In 2016-2017 we designed and filmed a series of 8 short films for the web which became some of the best performing films on the British Council Arts Youtube channel.
Walking Cities: Shakespeare Lives project brought together writers from across the continent to hold conversations around the impact of Shakespearean themes in our current times.
Under the guidelines of the British Council Literature team, we delivered a series of 5-8 min documentary films working in more than 6 countries and liaising with producers, authors and assistants in each of the cities.
We worked as a team of two where Diego instructed the visual style and technical approach and I directed the talent. In most cases I had to sound record and operate as a second camera unit as well.
Working for the British Council in a European wide project has been crucial to us to understand the need for creative approaches to information. The project exemplifies the importance of making culture relevant to different audiences and using different channels for its dissemination.
