I really appreciate everyone's help on and offlist on the Branagh query,
although I am even more confused now. I am aware of Renaissance Films
and I know that they distributed Branagh's Henry V and Much Ado About
Nothing. I also know plenty about Branagh's Renaissance Theatre Company.

However, I had assumed that they are both distinct entities, and both
different to the Shakespeare Film Company, which was specifically
founded by Branagh to produce Shakespeare films in the late 1990s, and
Love's Labour's Lost was the company's first project. That is the
company I need to track down, unless I have imagined it.

Best,
Emma French

The address I used to contact Branagh a couple of years ago is

Kenneth Branagh LTD
Shepperton Studios
Studios Road
Shepperton, Middlesex
TW17 OQD
United Kingdom

I don't know whether this address is still valid, but perhaps it's worth
a try.

Hi.

Kenneth Branagh is no longer connected with Renaissance Films, and
hasn't been for many years.  LLL was the first venture of a new group
called the Shakespeare Film Company.  Also in development were a Wall
Street MACBETH and a Kyoto cherry-blossom AYLI.  Since LLL flopped these
projects appear to have been shelved.  The Shakespeare Film Company was
mostly backed by a British film financing group called Intermedia:  I
think hunting them down would be the simplest way to find out the
current status of Branagh's Shakespeare film work.  There's a website
called (I think) theknowledgeonline.com which lists contact details for
media comapnies, personnel, and products; it's searchable by people's
names and by the credits of specific productions.  Though star personnel
like Branagh are never listed, quite often their associates are.

Cheers,
Laura Carroll
