The heritage film Water Marks takes a geographical journey around the town, harbour and coastline of Wells-next-the-sea, merging both its events and history over the last 150 years into one day. Water Marks mixes archival and contemporary materials, and the stories, perspectives and recollections of journalists, visitors and local residents inspire the narrative. The piece was commissioned by Wells Maltings Trust and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and permanently displayed in Wells Maltings, Wells-next-the-sea.
''The film is – quite frankly – stunning. You’ve not only captured the spirit of the brief, but have also created something that is hugely accessible, evocative, charming and beautiful. I can see our visitors being captivated and entertained hugely.’'
Simon Daykin, Director of Wells Maltings Trust
