This short film was created by a group of young people at Roundabout with the support of Silent Sheffield.
The aim of the film was to give homeless young people a quick tour of the hostel so that they'd feel a bit more comfortable before they arrived.
An HD version of this video is available, but has been uploaded as a smaller file to make it easier to view.
Young people from Roundabout:

The film featured the following Roundabout young people and members of staff:
This cut of the film features Sheffield-legend Richard Hawley's 'The nights are cold' as the main track - new album out now.
The credits feature the up and coming Sheffield indie heros: 'The Unfortunate Incident', with their track 'My Autobiography' from their debut album out now (http://www.myspace.com/theunfortunateincident).
Massive thanks to both. This is one of the aims of Silent Sheffield - to bring together creative talent with local charities to help make them more visible.
Finally, big respect to Shauna Acaster and all the team at Roundabout. Hats of to yer.
