Final Film Project

Here are some reminders about final film project materials.

Storyboards and screenplays- deadline before the end of school on Friday May 18:
You can submit these digitally or drop them off at the English office in room 141.  The storyboards should include at least 4 or 5 panels and the screenplay should include specific film techniques and how you plan to use them.  I will be reviewing them over the weekend.  If you look through the rubrics you will notice that all roles will lose 50% if this element of the project is not submitted.

Films- deadline before 8 am on Monday May 21:
For submission of this material you can either send me a YouTube or Google Drive link or hand me a flashdrive.  If you are placing the final product on the internet somewhere make sure to provide me access, as once again, I will begin grading these immediately.

*For essays- please email me a copy of the final essay by 8 am Monday morning May 21

As usual just let me know if you have any questions

Royal Shakespeare Co....

*This is the conclusion of the modern adaptation:

Write a brief response to the following prompt: "How does the ending of a work not appropriately conclude the work"

*Here is the link to the video if you are not going on the field trip... my expectation is that you watch the film, complete the prompt (complete a brief evaluation of an artist's interpretation of a work) and include specific evidence from the performance in your response - deadlines are Monday for odd / Tuesday for even.

(give the video a minute or two to load / you must be signed into to view)

email me with any questions

Act V + Hamlet Exam

I thought it might be helpful for you to watch at least one adaptation of how the final scene goes down.  There are some elements of this version that I think are particularly successful but we can talk about it next time.  Enjoy!

Also, don't forget there is an exam coming up so let me know if you have any questions. --- Stelzner

Oh, and here is a little commentary about Fortinbras by the director.....

Kenneth Branagh on "To Be Or Not To Be"....

I found this interview really informative.  As Hamlet is meant to be seen and not read there is certainly some value in understanding how actors and directors work through such an iconic piece of text.  It's only about 4 minutes.

Let me know if you have any questions
