H. Scott Hughes is a Texas-born writer and filmmaker, as well as singer/songwriter, and film/stage composer.

Career[edit]

Hughes is a graduate of Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi and the Vancouver Film School.[1][2] He is the co-writer/director of the 2007 short sci-fi romance Food for the Gods which premiered on Canada's Shaw Multicultural Channel,[3] as well as screening at the Vancouver International Film Centre, the New Asia Film Festival[4][5] in Richmond, BC, the Route 66 Film Festival[6] in Springfield, Illinois, and the 12th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival.[7] As a producer, Hughes developed the short documentary, Duty, which was nominated Best Educational Documentary at the Bayou City Inspirational Film Festival in Houston, and won the Honorable Mention Documentary nod. As a screenwriter, Hughes shared with director Zhou "Joe" Fang the Audience Favorite Drama Award for the short paranormal thriller Crazy Old Woman, at the Route 66 Film Festival—a double billing with Food for the Gods.

In 2009, Hughes co-wrote the short comedy whodunit, Murder at the Orient Street Express, co-produced by the Vancouver Asian Film Festival, which premiered at MAMM Fest 2009.[11] In 2010, Hughes shot two back to back short sequels to Food for the Gods, titled Megami: Legacy for the Gods and Megami: Search for the Gods,[12] (a project referred to in previous press as Food for the Gods II: Aftermath[13][14] ). The producers refer to the two shorts as "teasers" for a possible larger project down the road, possibly a TV pilot and/or series based on the property. The sequels will be released by early 2011, the precise date currently unspecified.[15]

Hughes is also attached to a Canadian pilot project called Timekeeper: The Passage as a writer and director, the story based on a novel by Stephen McKinnon.[16][17][18][19]

For two decades, Hughes has also performed as one half of the established Texas Brazos Valley vocal duo Brandie&Scott.[20][21][22] He composed and performed the score for Duty[23] and co-composed (with Yvette Lu) the classical Asian-style score to Food for the Gods, which featured erhu player Xu Qian, and singers Yvette Lu and Beverly Wu, engineered by Doug Woods.[24]
