In this week’s episode, we welcome back the amazing Shakespeare Sisters, Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare & Hillary Shakespeare. They chat with our hosts, Giles Alderson and Dom Lenoir, all about what’s happened in their filmmaking careers since the last time they had been on the podcast (in the sweet summer of 2019).
They talk all about the cinema & festival run of their films Soundtrack to Sixteen (2020) & Much Ado (2022) and what they have learned from it, how to network, and the tasks of a producer. They also share tips and tricks on getting people to your screenings. They discuss making films on a small budget and what it was like to direct Much Ado together. And they talk about their next exciting projects.
We had a fun conversation with Anna-Elizabeth & Hillary. So sit back, relax and enjoy this week’s episode with Anna-Elizabeth & Hillary Shakespeare.
MUCH ADO is on festival tour!
Hero and Beatrice, cousins and best friends, have very different approaches to love. Beatrice, burned once, is fiercely avoiding her arrogant ex-boyfriend Benedick and has sworn off men in general. Hero, a true romantic, is deeply in love with Benedick’s friend Claudio, but too shy to say it. When they get trapped in a house with the entire boys rugby team, they’ll be forced to face the questions they’d been avoiding.
