50 Years of Hull Truck

Video Production Hull Truck 50 Years of Hull Truck Arts Interviews

We were delighted when Hull Truck came to us when they wanted to create films celebrating their 50th birthday.

A series shot throughout the year, we sat down with the people who make the theatre such an essential cultural institution – from the patrons and amateur dramatists through to aspiring performers and writers.

This job was about telling personal stories. And sometimes when people are speaking about the thing they love, you don’t need spectacular b-roll and flashy editing.

With this in mind, we’ve used a stripped back treatment – interviewees addressing the viewer directly – telling us what Hull Truck means to them.

It’s always a privilege to talk to people about their passions and we hope this series of shorts has captured something of the magic Hull Truck has cultivated over the last 50 years.


"As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, we wanted to create a series of short films to shine a light on all the people who make Hull Truck Theatre such a tremendous place to work and play. From dedicated staff to loyal audiences and enthusiastic community partners, each group plays an incredibly important role in making our theatre what it is today. Nova Studios were instrumental in bringing our vision for the film series to life, delivering seven films that perfectly tell our story from the perspective of many different valued individuals. Their professional yet friendly manner behind the camera immediately put everyone being interviewed in front of the camera at ease. The way they edited the films to communicate a streamlined narrative was also very impressive! It’s been a real pleasure working with them – from start to finish."
