Frankenstein: A Story of Creation

This collection of films is the result of a creative collaboration between the National Theatre and the Royal College of Art. Students on the MA Visual Communications course at the Royal College of Art were given a variety of stimuli by the National Theatre, including attending a performance of Danny Boyle's Frankenstein, and challenged to respond by creating their own piece of film.
