our experience with Canal+ TV crew filming us

10 Aug our experience with Canal+ TV crew filming us

It felt very strange for us to be filmed whilst crafting our mini protest banners at Paper Dress Boutique in Shoreditch, London. The presenter Alexandra of the documentary programme we will be in (October/November 2011) was really lovely and asking us questions about why we do craftivism, how we started and what we hope to get out of doing our little projects. We were filmed making our banners and then putting them up around Bank Station where many Bankers work. All of the banners are addressed to bankers to urge online pharmacy biz them to support the Robin Hood Tax.

Off camera we asked Alexandra about french politics, her experiences interviewing other forms of activists across the global and we taught her to cross-stitch.

Above is a mini protest banner made by craftivist Barely who runs the beautiful ethical craft shop Fabrications.

We can’t wait to see the documentary we are in. Alexandra, and researcher Carole took a Mini Protest Banner kit to make and hang up in Paris. I wonder what they will write on them?
