Is this fun or what? This is just the footage of the first Shakespeare recitation on video ever taken while gliding down a thermal spring fed Swiss water slide (at :36). Sorry about the audio. Waterproof camera and all. At least let’s hope it’s a first. Not sure what other crazy original idea I’ve got […]

After a crazy afternoon of reading the whole long III;2 around every corner of this impressive complex, we stuck around to tape this scene at night when the lights perform their trippy multi-colored display. The audio is still tough (sorry). It is still snowing, which is pretty cool, and we’ve retained our waterproof camera. There […]
I think this is the most amazing video of all. What an incredible, strange, embarrassing, exhilerating, comical time this was. So: We’re in Switzerland – in the middle of the Alps in Leukerbad – a ski resort above the town of Leuk. I am here skiing with my Swiss family, who have returned to this […]
This is maybe the best video so far since the Occupy protest march. In this one scene, albeit it is a long scene, full of clowns and lovers and all ranges of noble to doggerel verse, I try skiing for the first time with Yorick. A dangerous proposition! Remember Yorick is ceramic… Once again my […]
Gotta love the Swiss gondola video – it was coming all along – totally in the works from the beginning. Thanks to my 10 year old godson from heaven Colin St. Mary who did the stellar videography!
As I say in the video, I had to get this one out of the away on my lonesome. Especially given that this the German part of Switzerland, meaning that if anyone speaks a second language well it’s French and THEN English, these Holofernes scenes just aren’t going to make an impact (they barely do […]
I just had to post this one separately. Is it a first? Love’s Labours while skiing? Precedent! None. I think this guy was made to ski – it works perfectly! Thanks to my aunt Daniela Pellaud-St. Mary for filming so beautifully – also skiing!!!
It’s been so great to get here and finally ski a bit with the family. One of the consequences of skiing with a big group (besides the fact that the kids make you look like a total amateur on skis), is the waiting game – often, there’s time to kill waiting for everyone to meet […]
Riding up on the FOURTH different kind of ski lift while filming, this really completes the quad-fecta! (get it? anyone?). For those of you following along, I was trying to read all of Love’s Labours Lost on Swiss ski lifts, and while skiing and doing other skiing related activities. It was critical to get the […]
Here we are in amazing Leukerbad – the alpine town in a German speaking part of Switzerland. Leuk is the nearest town – way down the rugged mountainside. But atop the mountain here – a long gondola higher than the highest roads, we have the most pristine view ever, to complement the most pristine of […]
This was a fun experiment. We’re on a 6 seater – the video begins JUST as we’ve sat down and launched. It is a windy day, but still surprising how way up at even this height you can hear the text clearly – I only mean that as far as the camera is concerned, it […]
