Hamlet From The Stage is a video production designed to be an extra feature on the DVD video of the stage production of Hamlet, performed by the Division of Theatre and Dance at East Tennessee State University, and filmed by the Department of e-Learning during the Spring Semester of 2009. Hamlet From The Stage is a professional interview style video package of the cast of Hamlet designed to help inexperienced collegiate actors learn some useful tools when approaching a Shakespearean audition or performance. This video package represents over eleven months of production: concept, writing, set design and studio setup, interview scheduling, filming, editing, audio enhancements, and video color correction. The ETSU Department of e-Learning is scheduled to have the post-production on the Hamlet DVD production completed by the end of Spring 2010 and Hamlet From The Stage will be packaged and released as the Hamlet Bonus Features on that DVD.
