A short film written and directed for The National Youth Theatre for the company’s ‘shakespeare in the square’ urban theatre festival in London’s east end. The film makes a link between shakespearean text and modern mobile phone ‘textspeak’. I worked with young actors from the NYT as well as aspiring actors from the local state schools in the east end. The festival staged in hoxton square was widely reported on the BBC. I also designed the look of the whole production from stage designs to publicity … and wrote and recorded the music soundtrack to the film.
