Independently, Hutcheson directed the documentary The Prison Sutras (1997), and produced numerous short films including Jornado del Muerto (1998), Cry Like A Baby (2000), and Vollis Simpson’s Whirligigs (2001).

Obliquities, a collection of short films, is forthcoming from Sucker Punch Pictures. Hutcheson, in collaboration with Wolfram, is currently engaged in an ambitious feature-length documentary on cultural decay in the rural fishing communities along the North Carolina coast.

Hutcheson received a Regional Artist grant from United Arts in 1997 and again in 2002, and a highly competitive Visual Artist Fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council in 2004.
