OMG get a windshield for your mic, and don't put your subjects in the sun.

Funny really. Ive seen Stone at a few festivals over the years, a chronic ashmatic eh?….who smokes dope like a chimney. Also against capitalism…clutching a very expensive camera.
Another benefit claimant telling us the system is wrong…but still wants his Babylon money.

Hi Propellerhead,

Thanks very much for your suggestions. If you read our full introduction, you'll discover how we came to be filming Stone on Sunday. Amongst other problems on the day, we don't possess any windshields for the built-in microphones on our HandyCams.

Kasia advised against it, but Stone preferred to stand in that spot.

Namaste,

Jim

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for your comment. I'd never met Stone until a few minutes before recording that interview with him. He didn't explain the causes of his asthma to us.

From what he did tell us that camera is an essential tool of his trade, or should that be his art?

Stone also told us that he refused housing benefit in order to prevent his (presumably by now ex) landlord receiving substantial amounts of taxpayer's money whilst refusing to provide habitable accommodation.

Namaste,

Jim
