[Edit:] Front page! Yes! Thank you!

This was something I decided to do for fun one day. I only did the audio though then some people suggested I animate it. So I did.

Hamlet's Mother - Ariellabee
Ophelia - Laura L'Artiste
Everyone else - Tygerman

In regards to the duck:
(This is a warning, this may ruin the randomness of it. For those who do not wish to make it less funny, do not read this)
In scene seventeen of Hamlet NOTHING HAPPENS. So originally I was just going to have Horatio standing there saying "I-" But when I recorded it and cut it off my sister thought it sounded like a duck quack. So I made it that.

Woah, that was fast! Looks like all the key points are included though. Graphic could've been a bit better, but the voice acting makes up for it. Quick and entertaining. Nice work!



It's hilarious because it's true.
My favorite part was the ending. (Again because it's true.) EVERYONE'S DEAD! THE END!

Weirdly funny.

It's hilarious! I know loads of people who would love to have read Hamlet this way :D

Time saving

I wish I had this as a reference in High School. Would have saved me so much time compared to reading the play.

Hahaha Niiiiice...

I showed this to my teacher and she got a good laugh out of it. I like how in the end it gets faster and more random. As you might've noticed I have read the book and understand the whole thing. Two thumbs up!
