'Shakespeare Lives: Julius Caesar' by Pedro Martin-Calero
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, the British Council are releasing a film every month depicting a new interpretation of a scene from a play by the immortal Bard. The latest in the Shakespeare Lives series is this strikingly visual adaptation of a scene from Julius Caesar by Pedro Martin-Calero.
Mark Stanley (Game Of Thrones, Dickensian) delivers Brutus's speech justifying the imminent assassination of Caesar to his fellow senators, in a scenario which combines a contemporary setting with elements of surrealism. And with his speech intercut with armed soldiers heading to eliminate Caesar, the ominous sense of a coup d'etat unfolding is intensified by the fact this was filmed in the actual corridors of power.
Due to the client and the nature of the campaign, Martin-Calero and crew had access to locations in the Treasury and the Foreign Office, where they filmed for two days. They certainly make good use of them, in a piece which is an object lesson on how the visual language associated with music videos can help bring the work of Shakespeare to a new audience.
