What made you want to present MAAN under vlog form, and how did you first go about making this project happen? I've been loving NMTD so far and am curious as to what the creating process was like!

Hi!

After we watched the last video in ‘The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’ we were all sitting around and talking about how the genre of ‘Vlog Series’ would probably take off in the next year or so. We were wondering what stories other people would choose to tell. That got us talking about what we would do (hypothetically) and Shakespeare seemed the obvious thing. ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ was a play we all knew and loved already, and we talked about how cool it would be in vlog-style, and how awesome this hypothetical series would be. Then we realised that as a vlog series it wouldn’t need much set, budget, or people involved so it was a thing we could actually do. Then we kinda sketched the series out and were like… “we could probably make this” “yeh why not” “lol let’s write scripts all year and then film it in summer” “okay cool”.

There’s a lot more to this story, but we talk about it in our Candle Wasters chat videos. We’re currently editing them but the series is our priority :)

We’re all interested in media and the creative industries so it was just a really fun challenge to see if we could pull it off. It’s so astounding to us, and incredibly flattering, the response that NMTD has been getting. Thank-you so much to everyone. Really, truly, wow.
