Now that I've come out of a relatively busy two weeks, I'm ready to start adding some steady content to this site. First off, a long over due recap video of Stanford Shakespeare Company's "Antony and Cleopatra."
"Join us for a trip to Shakespeare’s Alexandria, where Mark Antony, drawn from his home in Rome by the cunning temptress Cleopatra, lives in unimaginable luxury. When his homeland enters a period of turmoil and his loyalties are tested, we travel throughout the classical world to Rome, Athens, and beyond. It is a world in which leaders play as hard as they work, transitioning seamlessly from careful political machination to drunken revelry to outright war. Antony and Cleopatra is a romantic tragedy of epic proportions, showcasing some of Shakespeare’s most magnificent language as the intensity of the lovers’ passion slowly brings them to their downfall."

This is now my second theater production filming with the new camera, the first being "Into The Woods." Acting is a whole different world of recording, and I'm loving the facial nuances between different characters. These shots would be better on a tripod, but since I was filming a full non-stop dress rehearsal, I opted for a run and gun approach that would let me shoot different angles rapidly at the cost of the stability of a locked down camera.
Also, are there such thing as spoilers for Shakespeare?
