Jason Hutt

Jason Hutt grew up in Potomac, Maryland where he excelled as a student and soccer player, captaining Churchill High School to three undefeated seasons and state championships between 1992 and 1994. While studying at Harvard University, Mr. Hutt transitioned from athlete to artist, as his passion for sports was redirected from competition to storytelling. After seeing a few of Frederick Wiseman and DA Pennebaker's films in film classes, Mr. Hutt was immediately drawn to cinema verite filmmaking. In his first film, SAUSAGE HERE, a short documentary about the colorful Fenway Park street vendors, Mr. Hutt was able to capture the language, look and feeling that make sports characters and cultures so special. After graduating with honors in 1999, and participating in the Telluride Film Festival Student Symposium, Hutt worked in Hollywood as an assistant to Academy Award-nominated director/producer Mike Tollin on sports related feature films such as SUMMER CATCH, HARDBALL and READY TO RUMBLE. In 2001 Mr. Hutt returned to non-fiction filmmaking to make BREEZEWOOD, PENNSYLVANIA, a verite' portrait of a bustling truck stop town at the crossroads of two US interstate highways. BREEZEWOOD premiered as the opening night film at the Georgetown Independent Film Festival in August 2002 where it won Best Cinema Verite'. After additional US and international film festival screenings it was broadcast by PBS affiliates in Spring 2004.
