Set up at the start of 2016, Humber Film aims to provide an expert and friendly film hub for new and established filmmakers.

This takes the form of working collaboratively and independently, providing a resource for inward investing producers.

As a not-for profit organisation, Humber Film has a growing number of members from across the region. Many of them are based above Kardomah94 on Alfred Gelder Street, where numerous projects are running at any given time.

Members include BAFTA winners and an Oscar nominee alongside highly skilled producers, directors, writers, actors, camera operators, editors and composers.

Working across the full range of film output, from commercial work and animations to social media promos, Humber Film currently has an opportunity open to the general public.

A Place They Called Forgotten Town is a major music video shoot for the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 Creative Communities Programme.

It’s a musical and lyrical reworking of Hull-born composer-musician Henry Priestman’s 1980s chart hit Forgotten Town by The Christians. The song focuses on the state of the country at the time, especially the north.

We spoke to Humber Film Strategic Manager Malcolm Joslin to find out more:

“The video aims to be a vivid and memorable portrayal of Hull as a community of optimism and renewal.”

“It marks its shift from a ‘Forgotten Town’ to a city that is becoming a top attraction in the UK.”

A Place They Called Forgotten Town will see well-known local musicians Martin Clappison and Emma Fee on lead vocals.

Recordings have taken place at Fruit Trade Music on Humber Street, organised in conjunction with fellow arts organisation Culture:Music.

With thirty Humber Film members involved directly or indirectly in the project, creative leads include Peter Hadfield of Land of Green Ginger Design, Paul Leeson-Taylor of Mindmap Productions, Phil Codd of Mollusc Films, and Alex Twiston-Davies of ATD Animations.

The music video will feature more than twenty Hull community groups, including Danny’s Dream, Humber All Nations Alliance, Child Dynamix, Hull CVS, and Hull Clinical Commissioning Group.

Avid photographers and filmmakers, amateur or professional, can also get involved. Humber Film is accepting photos and film clips showcasing modern Hull to feature in their video. If your work is chosen, you will be given full credit.

Please submit your work using to The closing date is Sunday 19 February.

Please note that photos need to be in high resolution. Video clips can be no longer than 15 seconds and must be supplied in H.264 format at 1080p.

Once complete, everyone will be able to listen to the song and view the video online through social media from 1 March. Make sure to follow Humber Film on Facebook and Twitter so that you see it right away.

As for the rest of 2017, Humber Film and its members will continue to develop new projects. Next up are The Gongs from 13-18 March. To find our more, please visit the Kardomah94 website.
