This project is a silent typography film that draws its inspiration from Shakespeare’s iconic masterpiece, “Hamlet.” Our primary objective was to delve deeply into the nuanced role that typography can play within the cinematic medium, disregarding all conventional visual elements typically associated with filmmaking, often referred to as "mise-en-scène." We pusposefully excluded the inclusion of actors, elaborate costumes, scenic backdrops, sounds, and the physical staging of any dramatic action. Instead, we opted to focus exclusively on a carefully selected fragment of lines and narrations from the original text, weaving them intricately into the fabric of the film through the expressive medium of typography.
