Groundbreaker Films, LLC. produced the multi-award winning historical documentary, “SHAKESPEARE: The Truth Behind the Name.”
One man changed history; the wrong man got the credit. One man had an education fit for a prince; the other man could barely write his name. Who really wrote the works of Shakespeare? It’s not who you think it is.
Since September 2020, the film has received over 180 awards from over 75 festivals around the world. The film has not been publicly screened or had a premiere, and appeals to a broad audience.
Robin Phillip's career has always marched down three paths simultaneously: Performer; Writer; Producer. As a performer, she is a singer, actress, and narrator. As a writer, she is a journalist, playwright, and screenwriter -- and as a producer -- she creates plays, films, and cabaret.
My first brush with Shakespeare came years ago, when as a young woman I was studying acting in London, with tutors from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Webber Douglas, an acting school. The question, “How did this author’s personal history affect his work?” simply never came up. (Isn’t that odd?) Anyway, returning to the U.S., my acting career veered toward Kiss Me Kate and away from The Taming of the Shrew.
