"I didn't find it hard to talk to them, it was easy, I wanted to volunteer to talk"

Ellie (14) on participating in 'Notes To Self'

Dark Water - Behind the Scenes Film

Contains lots of interviews and workshop movies that the ACE students made in order to learn the basics about camera, sound, lighting, editing and acting for film.

What is the connection between Baptist (a boy rejected on his home turf of Mossley Estate), the mysterious tramp living on the nearby reservoir and a series of youth murders in the local area?

The video is a chilling tale conceived and filmed over a six month period with students from the Sneyd Community School's Alternative Curriculum and drama departments.


Dark Water was nominated for best sci-fi/horror category at the  Limelight Film and Arts Awards 2010.

See the film trailer


"It was a bit of a gamble, I thought these (ACE) kids might stick their fingers up and we'd have a riot - but I think the film project has been a tremendous success...I've watched the kids grow in confidence, grow in self esteem - and develop a sense of humour!" Eddie Mahony, Lead teacher of Alternative Curriculum Sneyd Comprehensive

"I really enjoyed watching Dark Water. A very powerful, dark and very well executed film! Please can you pass on my congratulations to the young people involved." Mediabox
