Synopsis
Animation students from Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London created a series of short films exploring Shakespeare through animation made for a Royal Shakespeare Company exhibition called Devices and Disguises which was produced for the London 2012 Festival. The film focuses on Viola and Orsino and her inability to express her love. At the beginning, while playing piano for Orsino, Viola drops into her imagination. However, even in her imagination she is constrained and brought back to reality.
