Created by

Newland School for Girls, UK

Outline

Introduce a scene from a well-known Shakespeare play, introduce the basics of using Moviestorm and show examples of the work.

Ensure the students understand the purpose of the scene and ask them to re-create the scene, initially as a film trailer to focus on the important dialogue, using any of the resources available in Moviestorm; examples could be the Romeo & Juliet balcony scene, but set on a space station; the siege in Macbeth set in an urban environment; the three witches from Macbeth, but set in a high school staff room.
