“Sharp and inspiring… a real sense of intimacy as well as an alignment between the filmmaking and the subject’s environmental science practice.”

– Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine


Random Legal Move is a ten-minute narrative short written and directed by Noah Hutton that was created as part of MOSAIC, an anthology film featuring short science-themed narrative work from ten emerging directors, all concerning the theme of “hybrid identity”. Random Legal Move stars Devika Bhise, Ronald Peet, and Arliss Howard. The MOSAIC anthology was commissioned and produced by Imagine Science Films and premiered at the Imagine Science Film Festival in 2017.

“Hutton manages to effortlessly embed a rich, multidimensional take on the human condition through a personal story of family, humanity, and the advancement of science… a modern-day artificial intelligence story that is personal, cerebral, and incredibly compelling.”

– Lujain Ibrahim, Labocine

The oil industry in North Dakota and aliens? There’s no denying the fact that “Deep Time” (Noah Hutton’s follow up to his 2009 documentary feature “Crude Independence,” which also premiered at SXSW) has some serious range, as it explores the recent oil boom in North Dakota. The film focuses on the effect of the fossil fuel business indigenous people in the area — and takes an ethereal (yet dark) look the the future ecology of our planet. (INDIEWIRE)

“Goes beyond a mere environmental-protest film and feels more like an epic end-time poem.”

— Janet Smith, The Georgia Straight

“Artistically and analytically important… challenges us to reconcile the often competing interests of narrative and time.”

— Jonathan Peyton, Antipode
