Congratulations to Neal Hutcheson ’92. His documentary about moonshiner “Popcorn” Sutton has earned him an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Television Programming Excellence. The Last One, which first aired last year on South Carolina public television, follows Sutton as he makes “one last batch” of moonshine in the Appalachian Mountains.

A video producer at NC State and co-founder of Sucker Punch Pictures, Hutcheson has produced five documentaries for public television in collaboration with NC State’s renowned linguist Walt Wolfram, as well as various short films and documentaries. The Last One won in the category of “cultural documentary” at the Southeast Regional Emmy Awards on Saturday in Atlanta.

    Popcorn said he’d be gone within 5 years.
    Spring 2009 he was sentenced to prison for moonshining. He told the judge he’d kill himself rather than go to prison. He went home and did just that.
