Happy (belated) #Shakespeare401 Everyone!

We hosted a little party on the 23rd April – here are some of our photos celebrating Shakepeare’s Death (and Birth) Day!

A big fat thank you to everyone we worked with over the past year (there’s a whole lot of you) and a big fat thank you to William Shakespeare – you’re a pretty awesome bloke!

Introducing #ShakesHead and @insouliloquy on instagram!

As part of our continuing management and growth of this platform we have diversified our social media to instagram – we have the same handle as our twitter @insouliloquy and are already busy posting #behindthescenes photos, stills and various bits and pieces from existing and new work.

Both of us love instagram. It’s a platform we enjoy as well as twitter – so please come check us out. One of the key pieces of new content we are launching on this platform is #ShakesHead – a talking heads doodle web comic with Shakespeare’s bust and Yorick having a rather one sided conversation. It’s pretty simple but totally cute.

#ShakesHead One.

At the moment it’s very low tech, non-fancy but we shall see how it develops as we potter along. #ShakesHead is a little ambitious – certainly in terms of zines.

We will be cross posting, some of the content here to the blog – collating a (optimistically) weekly #ShakesHead blog post for example. In the mean time – we’d love to see you there!

We are delighted to share a little of the behind the scenes work (fun) that has gone into this project! Please come and share a laugh at the various antics edited together for your viewing pleasure from our resident wonder Victorine.

 

 

End of April.

It’s the end of April (Shakespeare’s Birthday Month) and a time to reflect on our project before moving forward with it.

 

Before we move on to our Second Cycle in May here is a little pause and a reflection on things that we (V&T) Team In Souliloquy have achieved in April.

This April the two of us have produced, written, directed and edited 6 new films.

What we actually did.

  • Finished 6 new monologues in classical form and structure
  • Designed the In Souliloquy logo and Character plates
  • Story boarded 6 Souliloquies
  • Cast 6 wonderful actors for the roles
  • Built a website!
  • Maintained and updated the website.
  • Learned how to use vimeo
  • Started and managed a very active twitter account (@insouliloquy)
  • Sourced space to shoot the first cycle (thanks again to Jenny Dee) x
  • Made candles for cupcakes on set.
  • Shot 6 Souliloquies
  • Captured 6 great performances on film and 2 with photos (thanks Jennifer Hook) x
  • Edited 6 Souliloquies
  • Sourced music for the 6 Souliloquies
  • RE-EDITED 6 Souliloquies
  • Uploaded 6 Souliloquies
  • Released 6 Souliloquies on Vimeo and Soundcloud
  • Made a blooper reel!
  • Upgraded to a Vimeo PLUS account – in a week we went pro people…
  • Started a soundcloud account so people can listen to the Souliloquies – which is very different from watching them. It’s like a soul whispering in your ear.
  • Cast 6 new wonderful actors for Cycle 2
  • Sourced space to shoot Cycle 2
  • Fielded inquires about the project
  • Got involved in The Stage’s twitter discussion on #StageToScreen
  • WROTE 6 MORE NEW MONOLOGUES IN CLASSICAL FORM AND STRUCTURE

 

An enormous part of this work happened in the past week. On the 23rd of April 2016 400 years since William Shakespeare died we filmed and by the end of this month our first cycle was released.

Please celebrate the end of April by sharing on our unique responses to Shakespeare’s work and stay tuned to the website and twitter for news of more souls seeking an audience.

Love Tilly and Victorine

(V&T)

 

 

@insouliloquy for #Shakespeare400

twitterscreencap

As this is a primarily digital project we are focusing our energy on digital platforms and engagement – with an emphasis on twitter as it is a great way of becoming part of a community.

The main issue that crops up on maintaining social media accounts is content but we have had no problem with this – indeed there is so much interesting and exciting Shakespeare related stuff happening this month there is a real movement happening #Shakespeare400.

What is #Shakespeare400?

#Shakespeare400 is the social media hashtag for the month long celebration of all things Shakespeare to celebrate his 400th birthday!  It’s also a nice way for us to connect with other projects doing awesome creative work to celebrate. 

Please follow us on twitter – we are a mix of project updates and fascinating Shakespeare articles. Both prolific, polite and amusing. @insouliloquy
