As many of my regular followers know, I’ve created and published on my YouTube channel, the first three acts of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. I have all the photos and stop motion videos completed for the production of Acts 4 and 5, but I’ve had a creative block for almost a year now. I guess I was hoping these videos would be received with … Continue reading Update on #Shakespeare’s #RomeoAndJuliet with #Dolls
Things get heated up between the Capulets and the Montagues, in this, my third installment of Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. All of the dolls in this video are re-painted and all of them wear wigs, in true thespian style. But in spite of their theater makeup and disguising attire, can you name the dolls? Which doll is playing the part of Romeo? Who’s playing … Continue reading Romeo and Juliet With #Dolls #StopMotion #Theater, Act 3
If you haven’t seen Act I yet, here’s a link to that video as well. I’ve finished filming all five acts of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet With Dolls. However placing them all into movie format is tricky stuff. It takes about twelve to fifteen hours to produce a single act. So be patient, my followers. More acts are coming! If you love my stop-motion videos, … Continue reading #FriYay! Romeo and Juliet With #Dolls! @ ChellyWood.com

Here it is! The long-awaited stop-motion production of Romeo and Juliet “Act I” with dolls. This project has been underway for four years, and I’ve finally compiled enough photos and stop-motion clips to put it all together–all the way through Act V. I spent last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday working on film production. That’s where I add all the talk bubbles, music, sounds, and transitions. Since … Continue reading #Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with #Dolls @ ChellyWood.com

Eventually, I’d like … Continue reading Who’s Playing Juliet in My #ShakespeareSunday version of #RomeoandJuliet? #MomokoDoll! That’s who!
