Kevin Kutchaver






I started my career in VFX animating Light Sabers in Return of the Jedi for Peter Kuran's company VCE, almost 40years ago.

Continued animating on Ghostbusters II, both Addams Family films, all three Robocop movies and Star Trek IV: The Undiscovered Country, to name just a few.

On my own, I ventured into defining a digital desktop solution  for the syndicated TV series Babylon 5 for Warner Bros. Television.

In 1995, I formed Flat Earth Production, Inc. with partners Doug Beswick and Kevin O'Neil. That company's  6 year run with Hercules and Xena once again helped raise the bar for television effects. Mythical beasts and flying weapons routinely topped a 100 shots per episode. Feature work on films like Mortal Kombat II, Blade and Dungeons and Dragons followed. 

In 2001 I formed HimAnI Productions, Inc. We worked on a variety of projects including both live-action Scooby-Doo movies, Hellboy, Shoot Em' Up, Across The Universe and continued TV series work with Alias and Lost.

I am currently the senior VFX artist on the television show The Flash, now in it's 8th Season.
