Do you have some old footage stashed away, from a night out in a Yorkshire town? We need you.
There are going to be many ways to get involved with our opening event, Made in Hull. Curated by filmmaker Sean McAllister, Made in Hull is a celebration of our city and our region in pictures on buildings, and right now we’re looking for you to share your memories with us. We’re keen to see what you have in your lofts, cupboards and on your phones.
As part of one of the commissions, we’re looking to collect nightclub footage from Hull and the wider Yorkshire area. This footage may be used as part of the opening event by an internationally renowned video artist, who often manipulates footage to create his work. He is particularly interested in people dancing within a rave or dance / trance warehouse or club environment, however other genres and types of nightclubs are also of interest.
The artist has a few requirements and will be looking for when choosing what may be used:
- Where possible, there needs to be front lighting, so we can see people’s faces.
- In the video frame, we’re looking for bodies dancing wonderfully but great faces are even more important.
- People dancing who look and act interestingly, the more characterful the better.
- Colour film preferred, any period, any style, any culture welcome
Do you have any films like this, hidden away in your attic? We need high-resolution digital footage for this new project.
We do not guarantee we’ll use everything that we’re sent, and please only provide footage that you own and where everyone featured in the footage gives their consent for it to be used.
Fill in our form and share your nightclub footage to become part of this unique project.
