The People Of Hull Have Created Their Very Own "Hullywood"

    "What if Hull was really Hollywood and the people of Hull were film stars?"

    Photographer Quentin Budworth has teamed up with the people of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire for a cinematic adventure by recreating over 130 iconic films, all shot in the city of Hull.

    Budworth explained: “It started with a simple notion and a play on words: What if Hull was really Hollywood and the people of Hull were film stars? We’d have our own Hollywood but in Hull... Hullywood!

    “I wanted to create a project and body of work that involved the people of Hull as participants and collaborators in a playful way whilst allowing me to create photographs that people would enjoy looking at and engage with.”

    The photographer told BuzzFeed News: "Participants are asked to choose their Hollywood character, film, moment, and Hull location. A meet-up is arranged and the photograph is then published on the website, which publishes a new icon every day on its blog, Twitter, and Facebook."

    The art project Hullywood Icons will be exhibited throughout the city as projections in January. Budworth is planning to shoot a further 200 film recreations.
