Kevin S. Hutchison - Freelance Jib Operator and Production Manager with a background mainly in outdoor sports television, adventure, and corporate video.

Look for the "Summit" jib at the PBR bull riding tour all year long on CBS and CBS Sports Network!

Summit Digital Films (founded in Bend, Oregon in 1992) has been Idaho based since 2000. Summit Operates on several different levels of film and video production, depending on clients needs. Summit’s Sole Proprietor, Kevin Hutchison has filled the role of Production manager, Director of Photography, Camera Operator (with an emphasis on jibs), and Specialty Equipment designer. Kevin has a BA degree in Cinema from Columbia College-Hollywood.

In the role of production management, Summit meets with the client as needed in the pre-production stages to help decide on crew, equipment and logistics for the production. Using Kevin’s diverse experience in the field and vast network of resources, Summit will give competent input during pre production that will accommodate the clients’ need for efficiency and value with an emphasis on using as many resources within Idaho as possible. And because Summit has virtually no overhead, no hierarchy of staff, managers and managers of managers, this gets done very fast.

In the camera department, Kevin has years of experience on myriad of productions spanning from photographing tequila on Mexican beaches to operating 100’ Strada cranes on snow covered mountainsides for sporting events such as ESPN’s Xgames to creating scenes using Idaho’s beautiful landscapes and in studio spaces right here in Boise.
