Classroom Posters #5: Richard III

This is the last of the five posters currently up in my room – but not the last Lego Shakespeare, you’ll either be pleased or dismayed to know …

Richard III.jpg

In some ways, this was the quickest and easiest image to take – because I had a very strong idea of what I wanted before I started shooting, and there was no need for ‘special effects’ such as smoke …

So there’s no story attached to this one?

I wouldn’t say that.  Richard has an enormous ‘hump’ of blu-tack under his cloak, which kept coming unstuck under the heat of the lights.  If you look back to the Henry V poster you might recognise the crown and hair, too.

I love the fact that this one has a very definite ‘Game of Thrones‘ feel to it … and that breaking of the fourth wall, recreating the feel of Richard’s opening soliloquy.
