benedict redgrove was commissioned by ESPN to make a film and shoot a set of images for wilson tennis, to show the manufacturing process of their balls for the US open. the reading-born artist, plus his camera crew, flew to the factory in thailand, shot the film and stills in one day. it’s an amazingly complex affair, requiring 24 different operations to make the final product. it was hot, loud, and the people who worked there, worked fast.

much can be said about the beauty in how redgrove has captured each stage of the manufacturing process. the mechanical motions of the machinery create hypnotic textures and patterns that are pleasant and therapeutic to see.

  • Thank you for showing my film. Just an FYI, my camera crew was me and my assistant, thats all. The reality of these jobs is sometimes glamourised, but very often it is just me and my assistant.
