“… (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 13 international film festivals to date and won 4 awards for the work – Best Lead Actor for Christopher Kirby at Austin WebFest, Best Cinematography at Sicily Web Fest, Best Hair & Make Up at Tuscany 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.
To capitalize on this amazing success, we are in the process of producing a teaser for our next project, the WW2 series ‘Till The Boys Come Home, as well as create pitch materials for Season Three of Shakespeare Republic: #GodsAndMonsters to pitch to decision makers when we travel to LA to accept our CINE Award later this year.
Your donation will help us pay for the WW2 uniforms, furnishings and props required to film the teaser, as well as other production costs, and produce the pitch materials for Season Three of Shakespeare Republic.
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 – and we need to be armed with material to show them!
We aim to 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.
