THE HULL STORY

A film of Hull’s past, present and future by Gavin Scott and Paul A Dennis.

The Hull Story will be a celebration of the city through the eyes of a Hull Born master storyteller, Hollywood Screenwriter Gavin Scott. Weaving the memories of its people into a picture of how the city evolved, how it works today and how it will work in the century to come.

The Legacy: Hull’s 2017 City of Culture Year will provide an unprecedented amount of exposure to Hull both nationally and internationally. It’s £32m budget is being spent effectively to showcase ’UK Culture’ from Hull. A city that has for many years been overlooked. We hope this documentary will build on Hull’s initial thrust into the world spotlight and intrigue peoples around the world with it’s quirky past, present and future.

Funding: To amass and produce the content for the final documentary the producers will be researching, collating content and making mini individual stand-alone films of varying length of the local companies involved in Hull’s key industries. In the following areas:

FOOD • PHARMACEUTICALS • FISHING • MANUFACTURING • DIGITAL & TECH • RETAIL & DEVELOPMENT • TOURISM • TRANSPORTATION & LOGISTICS.

Each Corporate MINI-DOC will be researched, written and presented by Gavin Scott in his professional and friendly style, aided by an authoritative team of local writers/historians.

These stand alone Corporate MINI-DOCS will create a valuable and historic timeline and a useful ongoing asset for those company’s own promotional purposes.

An additional version of each MINI-DOC can be edited to include a section covering an overview on Hull’s historic, civic, artistic, leisure and tourism highlights providing an opportunity to showcase the city itself. (Extending the length of the more business-focused original). These will include; Famous people from sport, film, politics, and the arts. A geographic and locational overview. Surprising facts.

All of these films will be housed online in a dedicated digital repository to be promoted as THE HULL STORIES.
