Wildes Schottland - Herbe Schönheit am Atlantik

Did you know that Scotland offers a fascinating wild life apart from castles, whiskey and kilts. Otters and ospreys feast on various fishes, in the autumn stags sound the air in their rutting season and in springtime the mating calls of blackcocks ring. Shots with the slow motion camera show their breathtaking fights. But also man has shaped Britain's North-West. So the film portraits farmer Alistair Sutherland and fisherman Callum Macinnon.

Director: Hans-Peter Kuttler

Hans-Peter Kuttler was born in Bochum in 1971. His roots in wildlife documentaries go back to his nature photography during three tours, which took him to Canada and Alaska for several months each in the early 90th. This raised his wish to capture wildlife and nature in moving pictures. The ‚wildlife film-virus‘ had been woken up.
After studying biology in Frankfurt in 2000, Hans-Peter was an assistant at Spectrafilm, working in the genre of reportage. 2000 until 2002 he worked first as assistant and then as cameraman for Nautilusfilm. Since 2003 he is cameraman for Ernst Sasse, and since 2007 he is contributing to script and directing.
His films were made for ARD, NDR, BR, Arte, ORF and Parthenon Entertainment.
His filmography currently includes his collaboration on 17 wildlife documentaries
