    **TIP JAR** Please consider using the tip button if you like the film. I will donate 50% of the total tips to a local homeless shelter in Manchester and the rest will go toward the budget for the follow up feature documentary hopefully going into production in 2013. For full write up about the making of this documentary please visit my blog http://mikestaniforthfilm.com/?p=9 Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/MikeStaniforth This is my debut documentary starring some unforgettable characters who all have their own personal, and sometimes sad, stories to tell. With homelessness on the rise in the UK and with more people sleeping rough on the streets than ever, I decided to speak to the homeless people of Manchester to see just how bad it is. With the council only providing a 'snap shot' of the true statistics of how bad the situation really is, we go on a journey with some of the people that the council are refusing to acknowledge. ------------------ With thanks to Claude Lee Sadik, without whom this film couldn't have been made, thank you for accompanying me for the strange and wonderful adventures around Manchester at very unsociable hours. Mark Sargison for cleaning up the audio and adding a wonderful soundtrack. John at Deep Elm Records for letting me use the one track I found that fitted this piece perfectly, you are very kind. Music details: MOONLIT SAILOR "Fresh Snow" from their album So Close To Life Lukasz, I doubt he will ever read this, but he made me realise just how lucky I am and to not take anything for granted whilst appreciating everything and everyone in my life. I hope our paths do cross again and under better circumstances. --------------------- All shot on Canon DSLR's using whatever lenses I could get hold of.

They rely so much on government/council funding and this is being cut all the time up and down the country, so it is important more than ever to donate money, food or clothing. Every little helps.

            WYWS was developed around the idea of simply doing something nice for a person while he / she snoozes (out of exam lethargy and stress!) at a desk! Many have said that the Singapore culture is one that is selfish and results-driven. However, the insomniacs of this independent effort (YES, WE ARE COMPLETELY ALONE!) are seeking to challenge this notion and bring about a positive and refreshing perspective through dropping a 1. Personalised Note 2. Gift (Coffee / Sweet) at a person's desk WHILE HE / SHE IS SLEEPING.

                    At Snotyoung, we develop concepts with a team of young multidisciplinary creatives. The idea was to introduce ourselves to the world. So, we started with the concept of Snotyoung as a character and shot this video.
