  1. How do the directors Trevor Nunn and Roman Polanski present Act I scenes I to IV of Macbeth to their audiences?

    The beginning (act I scene I) of both Nunn's and Polanski's version of Macbeth are very different. As both the directors use different techniques. Nunn doesn't start of where the book version of Macbeth starts off, but instead Nunn starts his production by shining a white spotlight on a circle from above and then all the characters of the play move in around and towards the circle, which creates a really good effect, as it shows shadows closing and covering the circle as the characters movie in.

  2. The Film Versions of Macbeth

    This is maybe because the director wanted to show you that Macbeth had spies everywhere and was listening to anything said in opposition to him. This idea at least keeps the viewer's mind in motion. Whereas in theatre you would view the whole stage in general so you don't feel that kind of intensity the producer was trying to capture. Television is an intermediary of entertainment to anyone watching it. This also applies to the working classes who are not that wealthy so instead can watch a production of Macbeth on television.
