folio on filmShakespeare’s works have always been central to the training provided by Drama Studio London, for their beauty, drama, technical challenges, historical importance and contemporary relevance. When approaching Shakespeare's language we work with first folio spelling and punctuation. As our contribution to the Shakespeare 400 celebrations a number of our graduating students opted to contribute to a peer-led Folio-on-Film project, placing a selection of short scenes/sonnets in modern contexts, challenging gender roles, working without a director and filming in one take, unedited, on their mobile phones.
