Creating Hackney as Home:
Five reflections on a London borough


Michael - Filming Day - 09/08/13

Today I did the DV filming for my movie 'Home Team'. I recorded one of the training sessions for my basketbal team called the Hackney Jedis. We did some practice games and then some exercises. Coach Perry worked us really hard, and he picked on my to do extra cos he knew I was being filmed! At the end we did some interviews with my team mates and with Coach Perry. It was a good session.
