South Norfolk actress makes it on Amazon Prime Video with £800 movie
A former Newton Flotman actress’ low-budget Shakespeare adaptation has made its way to Amazon Prime – four years after it was made.
Natalie Lauren starred in 12 – a contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night – in 2016, while studying experimental psychology and philosophy at Oxford University.
Now, four years later, the film – produced by independent studio Kotei Productions and costing less than £800 to make – has made its way on to the major streaming platform.
Ms Lauren, who now lives in London, trained in performing arts with a number of production companies, including The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, which offers training in music, dance, drama, production and film, before heading off to Oxford, where she graduated in 2017.
In a post on Twitter, the 25-year-old said: “It was shot three years ago, as a passion project between a bunch of uni mates, for less than £800, and now it’s going to be available to stream in people’s homes via Amazon Prime #bonkers.”
As of Sunday August 23, the film is available to stream for any Amazon Prime members.
