Mr. Farnsworth founded Hummingbird Productions in Nashville 40 years ago. It is now one of the longest standing film and music and production companies in America. Bob Farnsworth and his team have been best known for creating thousands of commercials. In 2010, Farnsworth was featured as an advertising industry icon on NBC’s TODAY show, which showcased some of Hummingbird’s most well-known work. He’s received many awards for his work, including numerous CLIOs, with a CLIO Hall of Fame Award for his “Budweiser Frogs” TV commercial.
Producing film and audio is no longer a separate process in the making of commercials and now movies. They fuse together as one process. It is Bob Farnsworth’s position that the future is “FUSIC,” the fusion of film and music. Although Bob started his career in music, he added film production to his repertoire 10 years ago with a sequel project, It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, currently in pre-production with others in development. With both disciplines under his belt, Farnsworth arrived at the concept of “FUSIC,” and he featured the idea in his 2014 TEDx Talk. Hummingbird Productions, which, in addition to providing original music and sound design and film, also produces commercials, web content and corporate communications, spearheads these projects by integrating its team of directors, sound designers, and its music group, using the Hummingbird’s FUSIC production process for these productions from inception of an idea through to the end.
