Hugh Welchman
Hugh Welchman
Co-writer, co-director and producer, BreakThru Films. Hugh graduated from Oxford University with a degree in PPE and a vague notion of wanting to make films.

He supported himself through teaching history, selling carpets, and even selling fish, while he joined various grass roots film cooperatives in London. After a few disastrous experiences, where the drama was all behind the camera instead of in front of it, Hugh sought out training at The National Film & Television School.

His graduation film, Crowstone, won the Cinefoundation Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and he was awarded the Sam Mendes Shakespeare Prize. He got his first professional experience producing short films for Monty Python, and then set up BreakThru Films. In 2008 Hugh was awarded an Oscar for BreakThru's first major production, Peter and the Wolf. The film also picked up several other top prizes including the Annecy Cristal and the Rose D'or. Peter and the Wolf premiered at a sold out Royal Albert Hall accompanied live by The Philharmonic Orchestra, then at the Hollywood Bowl, and has since been performed at over 70 concert halls worldwide. His project Magic Piano & the Chopin Shorts premiered in Beijing's Forbidden City with pianist Lang Lang, then at London's South Bank Centre and New York's Lincoln Centre, has since been performed in 30 major venues around the world with live solo piano accompaniment.

After falling in love with Polish painter and director, Dorota Kobiela, Hugh also fell in love with her film project, Loving Vincent, and has been working with her on it ever since.
