General
One of several Shakespearean lego movies collected at www.brickfilms.com, an online community "dedicated to the art of stop motion animation," whose main focus is the animation of plastic building toys, or bricks (LEGO, Mega Bloks, Best-Lock etc). These animations have become known as "brickfilms" or "LEGO Movies".

This production apparently started as a school project. It was produced and edited by Ferder and directed and filmed by his brother. Production date is unknown but the clip was added to the www.brickfilm.com website on 12.09.2003.
