Douglas (Doug) HUTTON

Executive Producer

Over the past 40 years Doug’s 225+ prime-time television credits include various international music series, 120 programs on Canada’s rich history and many programs featuring the cultural and natural heritage of North and South America.

Doug’s masterful storytelling has reached and captivated millions of viewers from many countries with meticulously captured HD and 4K footage.

Doug is known for capturing breathtaking footage of the Canadian Wilderness…incredible shots of the Rocky Mountains, aerial footage of forest fires, and rarely seen images of Canadian Wildlife. Doug’s work is appealing because of the drama, depth, and incredible storytelling power it holds. With a deep understanding (and love) of music and the power of harmonizing the soundtrack to the story – Doug sets himself apart from many producers/directors.

It comes with no surprise that the calibre of Doug’s work, the creative talent and production teams that are drawn to him, demonstrates the respect that the people within the industry have for him.

As Executive Producer, Producer, Director, Writer, and Composer, Doug has worked with hundreds of artist and actors from Dolly Parton, Bryan Adams, Jack Lemmon, Pat Benetar, Walter Matthau, Tina Turner, Leslie Nielsen, Ian Tyson, Vince Gill, Arthur Hiller (former president of the Academy Awards), Tommy Banks, the Guess Who, and symphonies such as The London, Edmonton, and the Grammy Award winning Nashville Symphony, just to name a few.

Doug is recognized for his ability to choose and work with the best people for the project. He has an incredible capacity to read people and empower them to produce world-class results. Douglas is a man of integrity, his working relationships are vast and always of the highest integrity.

His programming and footage has been broadcast on international television networks and speciality channels (including National Geographic HD) to millions of viewers and distributed in schools across North America plus national museums such as the Cdn Museum of Civilization and Juno Beach War Museum in France.


Global Reach

The masterpiece “This is My America” is a timeless treasure that is still played extensively today.

Doug taught the music industry how to let the reins loose by way of providing clear parameters for the project and allowing the artist the freedom to write and create material and works of art that were near and dear to their heart. His approach is a wonderful catalyst to creativity, as it is not stifling. He has built and nurtured countless careers in the music industry. Doug has helped musicians find the joy in their writing again.

Doug has been noted for the healing capabilities of his music, and the necessity in today’s world to mend.

One word resonates with many who have touched Doug’s work. Truth. Doug is a proponent of education. His work is rooted in family values, and educating through his amazing talents of storytelling and creativity. Historians note the validity and accuracy of his work, even in the music genre. In the This is My America project, he wanted truth in the making of it, the freedom to enjoy the output, and the freedom of choosing what steps and actions the listener would take as a result of being richer for enjoying the compilation.

Through the art of his storytelling and the mastery of his craft Doug’s mission to learn through history and set the stage to make the future better, is easily articulated by all that he works with, a true testament to his leadership ability.
