The Ruby-throated Hummingbird


I made a mini documentary about hummingbirds. I took a bunch of cool slow motion hummingbird footage and some close up live action footage. When I started putting it together, a friend suggested I add narration. Liking the idea, but not having the time or energy to put together some hummingbird research, I hired a voice actor to read the wikipedia article on ruby-throated hummingbirds.

A mini documentary.
Narrated by Rik Tyler.
Filmed and edited by Philip Wels.
