Oliver W. Tuthill Jr.
Tuthill is a six time Telly Bronze Award winner who received the coveted Washington State Governor’s Award in Media in 2002, as well as The Horace Mann Humanitarian Award in 2003. His educational films on emotional child abuse have received critical acclaim and are distributed throughout the world. His full length feature Dysphoria: An American Tragedy won a best picture award and was an official selection at the New York International Independent Film Festival in 2002.
Tuthill’s fascination with lake monsters and sea serpents began when he was a small child after reading accounts of the Loch Ness Lake Monster back in the 50’s.
“It’s exciting to have this opportunity to make a documentary about a lake monster in Seattle,” Tuthill said. “It’s been wonderful having the opportunity to work with so many American Indians from the Seattle area.” Tuthill’s film explores the relationship a local tribe has with Willatuk and how the creature came to be known as “God of Ocean.”
Tuthill recently directed the Telly and Grand Goldie Award–winning film Wound Heart: Pine Ridge and the Lakota Sioux, featuring Jim McDermott and Russell Means, which is available at WoundedHeartFilm.com.
Dan Schwert was also the executive producer for Wounded Heart: Pine Ridge and the Lakota Sioux and works for the Seattle chapter of Independent Feature Project (www.ifp.org). Schwert's other pursuits include writing and travel. He has published poetry, written two screenplays, and is working on a book about his second trip around the world.
