To leave the world a little better place than we found it, whether by doing a great job, or by simply demonstrating kindness.
Hummingbird Productions, established in 1976, began as a music production company and eventually became one of the longest standing advertising production companies in the world. Hummingbird has composed or arranged literally thousands of commercials including such well known ad songs as “Always Coca-Cola”, Wrigley’s “Double Your Refreshment” and "I Wish I Were an Oscar Meyer Wiener". With numerous Clio awards, including the Clio Hall of Fame “Budweiser Frogs”, our composers have also written original music for virtually every type of music venue.
Eventually, we realized that we have been on the same page with certain directors for so long we decided to join together and give a label to what we had been doing all along: FUSIC ( the perfect blend of film and music). Since that time, Hummingbird has engaged heavily in the film industry, both in the commercials world and in feature film. Through a subsidiary of Hummingbird, Liberty Films, we are presently in pre-production for the sequel to the classic film It's a Wonderful Life. We also continue to offer music publishing, music licensing and music search services while actively working with artists from around the world.
We offer a variety of sound production services, catering to budgets of local and international proportions alike. Whether it be in-house at Hummingbird's studio or on location for events and shoots, our team captures the power of sound through unique original songs and tracks, crisp location sound, voiceovers,
foley and numerous other products.
We have a multitude of visual services to bring your vision to life. From commercials, web videos and sizzle reels to music videos, documentaries and full feature films, we provide the necessary and best elements for that competitive edge. Because projects and budgets vary across the board, we are able to accommodate a wide range of clientele.

I am a Nashville transplant by way of Hoosierland and all points cornfield. Suffer from a bad case of wanderlust and a passion for world travel, but can't figure a way to do that without luggage. The world is my story buffet, and make my order with a side of tall tales and life vignettes. A well-cooked meal isn't too shabby either.
