This June a new kind of blockbuster is hitting Manchester, and you could star in it!
Artist Richard DeDomenici has travelled the world recreating some of cinemas most iconic moments, armed with as little equipment as possible. Now it’s Manchester’s turn.
Presented by HOME in association with hÅb, 24 Hour Party People: Redux will help us Mancunians reclaim our cinematic heritage and revel in our shared pop-cultural history.
This is your chance to taste stardom and be part of one of the film events of the year!
So what is it?
We are looking for volunteer extras to help us make low-budget versions of scenes from Michael Winterbottom’s 2002 Tony Wilson biopic 24 Hour Party People.
No experience necessary. We would LOVE to hear from you if you were involved as an extra in the original film.
The shoots will take place in the first week of June 2017 (Sun 4 – Tue 6), at locations across Manchester.
They will last an hour or so each. You will need to make your own way to the locations and dress the part, but The Redux Project will provide you with snacks and refreshments – and, of course, F-A-M-E.
Want to get involved?
If you would like to take part please send an email to email@example.com before Wed 31 May, 12noon with the subject ‘REDUX: Count me in’.
- your name,
- your phone number
- a photo
- your availability on Sun 4, Mon 5, Tue 6 June 2017
And if there is a particular character you’d like to play, please let us know!

And look our for the premiere screening + afterparty date soon!
About Richard DeDomenici:
Richard DeDomenici makes performances that are social, joyful, topical and political – although rarely simultaneously. He specializes in anarcho-surrealist interventions that create the kind of uncertainty that leads to possibility.
Richard invented the Carry-Ok wearable karaoke system, crocheted crypto-currency Knitcoin, and radical feminist Eurovision tribute Fux Bizz.
DeDomenici’s recent adaptation of his inexplicably popular Redux Project for BBC4 was described by reviewer Matt Trueman as one of the smartest, strangest, subversive half hours of television he had ever seen.
He’s performed in over 30 countries, and this autumn will unveil his most ambitious commission yet for the Radical Independent Art Fund.
