Hullywood studios recreate historical heroes

20th September 2016

Computer scientists at the University of Hull and the Glasgow School of Art are virtually recreating two of Hull's heroes. Amy Johnson – the first woman to fly a plane solo from England to Australia – is being created using similar techniques as a Hollywood film. The result will be life-sized interactive projections and screenings of the characters at various points across Hull.
