The story behind To Do Great, Right A Little Wrong is as fascinating as the story that is told in the film itself. For the film is wholly directed, written, produced and played by (former) members of the Cobbenhagen Company of Drama. For everyone it was the first film production they were involved in.
In the summer of 2013 Sander Akkermans and Stan Coomans brought up the idea to produce a short film instead of a play. A theme for the film was quickly decided upon: it had to be something associated with Shakespeare - the Company does perform one of his plays every other year.
The film was financed through crowdfunding and supported by Kunstbalie/BKKC and had a true cinema premiere in Cinecitta, Tilburg, on 15 November 2014.
The producers of the film founded film company Brief Candle Productions in 2015.
On a deserted heath, three witches are brewing a potion in a cauldron. Well...two of them are; the Third Witch is caught up in reading the Complete Works of William Shakespeare. She gets caught up in a real adventure when Puck, naughty spirit, accidentally throws the book into the cauldron, causing all the stories from the plays to get mixed up:
Juliet suddenly shouts the war cries of King Henry V, Oberon deals pills to a desperate Romeo in a back alley, Hamlet and Macbeth sit at the same dinner table....Puck and the Third Witch have to race against time to collect the scattered pages and put them in the right order again before it is too late.
