The project was commissioned by Waltham Forest Housing Engagement team with funding that was made available by Countryside, and co-funded by The Digital Story Company CIC.


Filmmaker Kate Hampel worked alongside award-winning composer Rex Horan to create a song and music video based on their experiences of living in the estate communities and the surrounding Wood Street community.

TESTIMONIALS


The real fun then begins as we record all the wonderful and generous folks who have inspired the work… It’s like Theseus’ ship – plank by plank, nail by nail, mast by mast and sail by sail, it becomes a vessel that we all had a hand in building together. Rex Horan, Composer.


This was a fantastic experience with an amazing final song and video. I was extremely impressed with how Rex and Kate engaged and got to know the residents so well - Leslie


I found it surprisingly fun...was a great experience. It's good to embarrass your teenage kids now and then!
