Julius Caesar

I worked on this beautiful film production of the RSC’s  ‘Julius Caesar’ directed by Greggory Doran, and now the stage production is showing in London. The film is produced by the lovely Illuminations company and was showed on BBC 4.

“Film version of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2012 production of Shakespeare’s fast-moving thriller. A vivid story about a struggle for democracy, Julius Caesar is also a love story between two men united by an explosive act of political violence. The setting is a modern African state in which the tyrant Caesar is about to seize power. Cassius persuades Brutus to join the conspirators plotting an assassination. Featuring a distinguished cast of black actors, the film is shot on location and in the RSC’s theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon.” From  the BBC website

If you read that slightly wrong and not knowing how film works it makes it sound like we shot in ‘a modern African state’ – I WISH!!! It was very very very cold on location and the crew did well to keep warm. But the actors are amazing to keep going in those costumes, imagining you are warm, and such long takes – astonishing.
