REAL STUDIOS SHINES A LIGHT ON SHAKESPEARE
Real Studios brings Shakespeare's life and legacy brilliantly into focus when a new introductory visitor experience opens at Shakespeare's Birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon in March 2014, ready to meet the thousands of pilgrims expected to visit this year, the 450th anniversary of his birth. Won through competitive pitch for client the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Real Studios' scheme is inspired by Shakespeare's enduring influence on everything from everyday speech through literature, music and right down to place names and venues in our physical environment. 'Famous Beyond Words - Shakespeare All Around Us' celebrates his legacy while also bringing his life and family roots in Stratford to the fore. A vivid, contemporary multi-media presentation includes bespoke A/V footage commissioned from 59 Productions.
