Raising Your Game is busy making a film about what it’s like going to court.
Here, Mencap volunteer Lloyd Page tells us about his day as an extra during the filming of a real-life court room scene.
Raising Your Game Filming – Stratford Courthouse 12.02.2012
They were filming to show what young people with a learning disability can expect if they ever go to court.
We used a real court room with real magistrates and real solicitors to show the experience from the defendant’s perspective.
They filmed in the court room and the waiting area and I was one of the extras.
When the film is finished they hope to have a screening back at the courthouse.
The lunch, fruit and hot drinks on tap was excellent and I hope to do more filming in the future.
This was arranged by Katy Palmer and a film maker Anne Parisio and they did a very good job
