There's lots in this article about a computer-animated staging of Macbeth to love:
- He's targeting it at high school kids as a way of increasing their interest in the subject matter.
- Robots. How do you not love robots? ;)
- Direct quote from the animator: “This is a staging not an adaptation, the text is sacrosanct. While the Shakespearean text remains the same, the visuals will be something that students can appreciate.” Amen, brother! (Although we could debate what "the same" means - I hope that he's not just blindly taking whatever public domain copy of the text he can find. You are allowed a little directorial freedom, man!)
- He's using Kickstarter. So he's at least making a valiant effort at trying to make his project a reality.
Still, though, I applaud and support the idea!
I wonder if he knows about Shakespeare in Bits?
