Rough Magic’s contemporary production of Shakespeare’s dark screwball comedy premiered at Kilkenny Arts Festival before a national tour in late 2019.

I produced several videos for both the premiere and the national tour, utilising the different resources I had for both .

This video focused on the director’s vision for the show, slicing together an interview with Ronan Phelan and footage from the performance.

This is the flashy trailer for national tour audiences, highlighting the fresh approach Rough Magic took to Shakespeare’s iconic script, and the country music soundtrack.

This video was shot outdoors with the actors in pairs to showcase the charm and chemistry between the leads (“it’s like Love Island meets Pride and Prejudice”) as a teaser for Kilkenny audiences. Shot by Tom Griffin and edited by Kevin Cooney
