Product Description
Description:
You and your group are up and coming filmmakers. You are very popular on the internet for your reenactments of famous scenes from literature. You’re so popular that a big motion picture company executive has decided that he wants you to do a film version of Hamlet. But there’s a catch. This movie executive wants to make a lot of money off of this movie, and he’s decided that the American moviegoers don’t want to sit through hours of “thee” and “thou.” No, he wants you to rewrite the play so that it’s modern and hip. He wants the language to be understood by the cool teenagers of today. He’s confident you can to do this; after all, you have 4,000,000 views on YouTube. However, before he greenlights you for this project, he wants to see a translated scene. You and your group get to pick the scene. You can either create a video or perform your scene in front of the test group (your fellow students).
For this project, you will work in groups of four. As stated above, you will either create a video that will be played, or you will act out your scene live in front of the class. You must show me your script two weeks before the presentation day so that I can approve it. Also, the executive wants this movie to be seen by as many people as possible, so you are going to have to make sure that your scene is PG at most.
