David Hutchison

I am a filmmaker and artist. The Deitch Gallery was originally my studio in Inverkirkaig, Assynt in 1990, then it became a pop up gallery on Lothian Rd during the 1992 Edinburgh Festival.

At that time I also got my first commission which was to create a short animation for STV.I created a TV hen video puppet for my short Cearc Agus UbH (Chicken and Egg)

After being commissioned to create backgrounds & props for animated TV series Uruisg Na H'alba (The Scottish Brownies)I transferred my traditional skills to digital at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee in 1996.

I spent several years freelancing as a digital designer,teaching classes in digital imaging and exhibiting sculpture, painting and video work. I experimented with interactive web series SeordagTV and mobile digital tasseomancer Taffa.

In 2007 I wrote Storm Hags and had an exhibition of paintings based on the story.

In 2009 I did the MA Screenwriting at Screen Academy Scotland and went on to produce more shorts and two feature films: Graders in 2012 and Baobhan Sith in 2017.
