“… (a) polished, beautifully made series from director/producer Sally McLean … a very fine adaptation of the Bard … Shakespeare Republic is put together with grace and wit.” – Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
Shakespeare Republic: #LoveTheBard (Season Two) starring Nadine Garner, Michala Banas, Alan Fletcher, Christopher Kirby and Dean Haglund, among others, is currently ranked in the Top 20 web series in the world and the Top 5 in Australia (Web Series World Cup), has been selected for 12 international film festivals to date and won 3 awards for the work – Best Lead Actor for Christopher Kirby at Austin WebFest, Best Cinematography at Sicily Web Fest & the prestigious 60th CINE Golden Eagle Award for Best Digital Series!
The 2017 CINE Golden Eagle Award is our first major industry recognition. And we’re in great company! Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Robert Zemeckis and Pixar, among others, also count the CINE Award as their first major industry accolade.
Fellow CINE Golden Eagle Award winners this year include Variety & PBS’s “Actors On Actors” and the Emmy award-winning TV series “Mr Robot” starring Christian Slater, as well as programs from NBC, Discovery, A+E Network, Sony Pictures and National Geographic, among others.
The CINE Award ceremony happens in Autumn in LA and we have been invited to attend to collect our award in person. In addition, we have also lined up several industry meetings to discuss our work and next slate of projects.
Your donation will help cover some travel costs, plus create a teaser for a second major project we will be pitching – ‘Till The Boys Come Home, as well as pitch documents for two more projects, adding to our own funds already committed for the trip.
Why is this particular trip important? The CINE win gives us access to the next level in the industry and the chance to secure international funding and distribution for all our current projects via face-to-face meetings with key decision makers based in LA.
We will come back from LA with stronger opportunities to move forward with Shakespeare Republic and all our current projects in development and begin implementing the next stage of the work here in Melbourne with our local production team. And with the bonus of some fantastic and relevant additional footage for our behind-the-scenes documentary, Building the Republic, to be released in early 2018.
