Logo for Bard Box
According to Shakespeare Quarterly, Bard Box "periodically posts the best animations, mash-ups, student projects, soliloquies and even campaigning films relating to Shakespeare performance, all curated by McKernan. Each video post is accompanied by a set of basic metadata, including title, date, cast and credits, as well as a brief description of the film and its main points of interest.

This is an intriguing set of links to videos of Shakespeare parodies and performances of various types.  The site is still active, but states that as of September 2012 is not being updated.

One of the most useful features is the tag cloud generated by the WordPress blog software which powers it, allowing users to find similar videos by play or poem title (these seem to be the only tags).

The site also notes that the 150 or so videos in the blog collection are available (presumably without as much commentary) on YouTube in two playlists, Bardbox, and Bardbox 2.
