The Pocket Oxford Theatre Company brings Shakespeare to schools. Emma has worked with this theatre company for many years, doing live video projections as well as documenting performances. The challenge in this film was to make a short 4-minute film from an hour-long play – filming from just two live performances. She took a long shot of the whole stage from the first performance. From the second performance, she and a second camera person shot the close-ups from either side of the stage. Capturing the action in close -up was a challenge, keeping one eye on the camera and one on where the performers might tread next.
