I’m Gavin Hugh,
and welcome to my website
I’m a Scot who has been fortunate to have had a varied career in television, politics, and teaching abroad. I now run my own video production business, which I find immensely rewarding.
I was born and raised in Kirkcaldy, Fife, and graduated from the University of Stirling in English and Film studies. I’m a filmmaker with an interest in film, writing, photography, literature, gaming, Japan, and much more. I’ve been fortunate enough to live for many years by the Fife coast, and I love exploring Scotland.
I’ve previously lived in Takamatsu, Japan, where I worked as an English language teaching assistant. My years in Japan were some of the best of my life, and I still feel a strong affinity for the country.
After returning to Scotland, I worked in television broadcasting, before working at the Scottish Parliament as a press officer and caseworker. In 2017, I established my own video production business called MidgieBite Media. These days, I’m usually found running around Scotland with a camera.
In 2019, I was named one of the 100 Fifers of the Year by the local Fife Free Press newspaper. It was quite a humbling acknowledgement and a big motivation to keep doing what I do.
This website is a space for me to share my film and video work, my photography, and my thoughts. It would be great to hear from you, so please feel free to get in touch.
