How to make a tennis ball

Benedict Redgrove was commissioned to make a film and shoot a set of images by ESPN, to show the manufacturing process of Wilson tennis balls for the US Open. He flew to the factory, shot the film and stills in one day then flew home.
It's an amazingly complex manufacture, requiring 24 different processes to make the final ball. It was hot, loud and the people who worked there, worked fast.
