Take a dizzying dream walk into the trees illuminated by light with Kurtis Hough in The Path
From the recently returned to DN and our interview chair, Kurtis Hough comes Toyland, a festive technicolor dreamland from The Ocean Floor.
Kurtis Hough’s approach to filmmaking may best be described as the ‘patient experimental cinema of nature’. He makes his third appearance on DN today with Warm Earth, Which I’ve Been Told and Cryosphere, a pair of films which both fall into that category whilst expanding the inventive creativity we’ve come to expect from Kurt’s work [...]
Warm Earth, Which I’ve Been Told (2012) A planetary eye on a passing day in the universe.
Long term DN friend and accomplished filmmaker Kurtis Hough seems incapable of taking a break from creating (something we’ll be talking to him about in the near future).

Well Kurt’s newest project Warm Earth, Which I’ve Been Told is probably his most ambitious yet: This is a [...]
Kurtis Hough’s work has always contained strong elements of nature. Whether it’s his paintings and photography, his nature documentary re-edit Storm or live action experimental work such as Shadows Grow Long. Even his fully 3D experimental piece Stumble Then Rise on Some Awkward Morning featured a spiral of descending flowers, so it’s no surprise to [...]
I’ve been following the work of filmmaker Kurtis Hough every since we were fortunate enough to have him on the show with his A Silver Mt. Zion inspired animation Stumble Then Rise on Some Awkward Morning. So it’s nice to see that he’s updated the KH Studios website to fully show off his photography, painting [...]
