With my research assistant Melissa Shaner, I have just completed a
hypercard stack which presents four different rendition of two soliloquies
each from Hamlet and Macbeth in QuickTime movies digitized from video with
Video Spigot and Adobe Premiere software. With the movies the stack takes
more than 200 megabytes, so we have to run it from servers at the moment.
I intend to use the stack in classes and seminars to work on notions of the
relation between script and production choices and on issues of
interpretation as illuminated by those choices.
