Sometimes, your passion can lead to great opportunities.
Many actors and directors know how hard producing any Shakespeare play is. The text is dense and complex, bringing to life many different interpretations that could either dive deeper into a specific character’s complex morality or tell the themes of the play through a non-traditional lens.
When adapting Macbeth for the screen, Joel Coen and Frances McDormand found that having someone who knew Shakespeare’s plays inside and out would be beneficial to the entire production.
As the Shakespeare consultant, Wayne T. Carr provided guidance and support for Coen’s adaptation, helping shape the performances that captivated audiences throughout The Tragedy of Macbeth.
Carr spoke with No Film School to talk about his role as the Shakespeare consultant in The Tragedy of Macbeth.
