My Updated Digital Storytelling Project July 18, 2010

Filed under: ISTC 501 Blog Posts — Ashley M @ 9:11 pm

I decided to do my project in a “movie-trailer” style to help get students interested in something that is traditionally a bit challenging for the average high school student.  I also believe that showing them clips of Hamlet in film will make them more likely to act out the play rather than just reading it.  Plays were not meant to be read; they were meant to be performed.

I used several programs to mix the video and audio to compile this video including: Audacity, YouTube, Windows Movie Maker, RealPlayer Converter, Microsoft PowerPoint, WinFF, and Jing.

The background music is called “Requiem for a Dream” which was downloaded from here.

The movie clips are from two film versions of Hamlet: Franco Zeffirelli’s 1990 version and Kenneth Branagh’s 1996 version.

The audio quotes are remixed from the Frank Zeffirelli version of Hamlet.

I do not own the rights to these clips.  The remixes were done by me.
