Romeo oh Romeo: WHYY High School Filmmakers

WHYY’s high school filmmakers made a Mockumentary for their final project during camp. Student actors took on the roles of Romeo, Juliet, director, and more while others focused on shooting, editing, and writing the script.

Romeo oh Romeo tells the tale of one school drama’s department attempt to put on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in a documentary-style film.

A mockumentary about a dysfunctional school production written, shot, and edited in one week? What could go wrong?
