Foreword by Adam Brannon: We are all adapting to some serious changes post-COVID-19 and as the world tries to get back on its feet, it’s been refreshing to see people trying new, exciting and different things.
Whether it’s deciding to cycle, rather than get on public transport or create your own podcast, the number of individuals relishing trying new activities has been perhaps one of the only positives of this troubling pandemic.

Foreword by Adam Brannon. My hometown of Hull was announced as UK City of Culture for 2017. Those of you unfamiliar with the city won’t know its transformation over the last decade.
After being bombed terribly in World War II, Hull suffered a period of serious decline from which it has only just started to recover, and it still to this day remains the butt of many jokes to the dismay of residents and fans. It’s going to take many years for Hull to be recognised as one of the UK’s greatest destinations, but with the help of artists like Quentin Budworth, the news will travel fast.

In this exclusive interview for Movie Metropolis, he discusses his reasons for embarking on The Hullywood Project, and how you can get involved in its future.
