F1 complete The Dracula challenge
Louise Burbeck

In previous lessons, we had looked at the different presentations of Dracula in film and considered how they differ from the original text:

His face was a strong, a very strong, aquiline, with high bridge of the thin nose and peculiarly arched nostrils, with lofty domed forehead, and hair growing scantily round the temples but profusely elsewhere. His eyebrows were very massive, almost meeting over the nose, and with bushy hair that seemed to curl in its own profusion. The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth. These protruded over the lips, whose remarkable ruddiness showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years. For the rest, his ears were pale, and at the tops extremely pointed. The chin was broad and strong, and the cheeks firm though thin. The general effect was one of extraordinary pallor.

Today, F1 were asked to put together their own presentations of the great man himself using anything that they could find at home in 40 mins. The results, I am sure you will agree, are extraordinary!!!
