Macbeth Indie Film Project


Here are some helpful links for your Macbeth indie film project. First, here's the assignment sheet, if you lost your copy. I've assigned this project for a few years, so there are many student versions floating around youtube. Here, here, and here are a few of my favorites. To find more, search the keywords "Macbeth, Mira Loma", or "Macbeth, IBSH" but keep in mind that you'll find some versions that succeed better than others. The image to the right is a student example of costume design. The justification talked about Lady Macbeth's sexuality, as well as the choice of black with a line of red running through it for color symbolism.

I can't wait to see the awesome director's notebooks and films you put together.

The Multitudinous Seas


Here is where I'd like you to link to something on the internet that quotes or alludes to a line in Macbeth. With the link, write a short paragraph describing the text (song, article, video, etc) and how it uses the quote. What new purpose are the words put to? Then, please read 1 or 2 other links, and comment on them. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
