Filming Hull 2017 City of Culture
UK City of Culture 2017 status has been a game changer for Hull and not just in cultural terms, visitor numbers and hotel occupancy rates have dramatically improved against the backdrop of a year long series of cultural events. Video has been a key tool in promoting and recording the massive calendar of events, not least via social media. Eon Visual Media has been instrumental in filming and documenting many of the cultural highlights during and in the run-up to 2017. Using our innovative approach to video, many events were captured in 360° footage, which allows the audience to re-live events through VR headsets or on their laptops at later dates.
