The Red Dragon
We are delighted to share with you, The Red Dragon: A Story of Idleness, a short film featuring writing and original characters by Squad 9 graduate Hannah Hobson.
Join Captain Keeling’s crew for a treacherous journey East, to find out how the curse of idleness is lifted by a performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Inspired by historical events, Hannah has transformed fragmented facts into a magically compelling narrative. Creators and co-producers, Abbie Willcox and Joe England, would like to thank Hannah for her incredible imagination and talent.
This is the first in a series of projects exploring the role of art and idleness in today’s society through the eyes of The Red Dragon. We hope you enjoy it!
