Scott Andrew Hutchins
Graduate of North Central High School (Indianapolis, Indiana).
I am a playwright and screenwriter; my works often deal with the incongruity between education and station, and from there point up other incongruities, often in a manner distorted in the vein of expressionism. I have produced documentary material for WFYI's Across Indiana, student films, three plays, five screenplays, a novel and a half, and numerous shorter works. I am currently composing an opera (by hand) and am in the planning stages of a musical. Despite a strong letter of recommendation from Philomenza Muinzer, former dramaturg at the Royal National Theatre, I have not yet received a workshop or full staging of one of my plays.
I am widely considered an authority on film adaptations of L. Frank Baum. My novel (approximately 66,500 words), Tip of Oz: The Oz Book for 1991 is barred from publication (at least conforming to author's intentions, as principal character motivation is drawn from events in The Lost King of Oz) under the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, and as such, I was an amicus claimant in Eldred v. Ashcroft. I have been encouraged to attempt publishing it on lulu.com, but as I am much more than a fan fiction writer, I have decided that now is not the right time.
I am currently an activist for the homeless after becoming one myself; in collaboration with Picture the Homeless, I am currently co-authoring a whitepaper tentatively titled The Business of Homelessness, on how low income New Yorkers are exploited for profit at taxpayer expense. I have also written two professional articles dealing with homeless issues for online magazines, Hopes&Fears and Arachne. My first job after I became homeless was editing videos for Bank Street Bookstore, but they terminated their relationship with the production company that hired me as a freelancer less than a month after I started. I have been a research assistant for Raj Amit Kumar's 69 Productions, worked in admin, promotions, and proofreading at Motéma Music, and have taught English composition at Boricua College. I am currently seeking steady employment, preferably in media/publishing.
I made my debut as a principal (not counting the Second Prisoner in Fidelio) as Antonio in The Marriage of Figaro in November 2008. I have subsequently appeared as a soloist in Orfeo ed Euridice, Silvano in Un ballo in maschera, the lackey in Ariadne auf Naxos, and Ivan (and the only bass) in Die Fledermaus. The latter, produced in 2010, has been, as of 2017, their penultimate production. I have also sung with Gotham Rock Choir, September Concert Foundation, Voices in Unity (my church choir), and St. Cecilia Chorus, now known as The Cecilia Chorus of New York. I have not sung recently outside of classes taught by David Friedman. I am known as "Bill" in Friedman's book, The Thought Exchange. I was working in the evening when documentary was made and thus not interviewed, though I was at one or two of the shoots.
