I took part because I wanted to learn more about film making and hadn’t been in a creative environment for some time. My role during filming was mainly camera man but I also experienced being a soundman and was at times the director. For the radio aspect of the project, I made a more general contribution, with my role being Quality Control.
I learnt a lot on this project about Dubplate, how politics in Jamaica influenced reggae and how Bob Marley’s upbringing influenced his music.
As a result of my participation, I learnt just how influential reggae music has been on musical movements since and alongside other people from the course, I have now a weekly radio show on Ujima!
