Meet eight-year old Taly Chavarria, the star of this short video courageously battling leukemia with the help of the American Childhood Cancer Organization Inland Northwest.
Marie Marx Strohm is an extraordinary partner in creating “mission moments” that supporters can connect with. I reached out to her because her style of production was exactly what I had in mind for capturing the essence of our work. I wanted someone who would capture the real emotion and impact that our agency has on the clients/community that we serve. Working with a local production crew, Marie did exactly that, and so much better than I could have imagined. I was very happy with the supportive, respectful way that she approached interviews with both clients and staff. Our work really radiates out of her production of “Empowering Women, Transforming Lives.” We highly
recommend Marie and Hummingbird Productions.

I was amazed at what you were able to do with both situations. The scarf/shawl was perfect for the second shooting – thank you for the attention to detail.
I am very proud of the video–of your skill and expertise–but timely too as I will be going up for tenure review this coming Fall and having this professional video to add to my CV helps immensely!
Please do let me know if you are back in the area. Would love to get together!

Marie. I just wanted to let you know that your film Tar Sands to Tankers continues to be well received and a really useful tool for giving people an overview of the project. We have reprinted the DVD three times and have over 500 in circulation now as well as having it on our website and the Pipe Up Against Enbridge website. We have them for sale at all our events. Thanks again for producing a great film.

Marie, Good to hear from you. Ruth and I really did have a great time at the birthday party for the state. Partly because it was so well put together, from a logistic and literacy standpoint – your scripts were superb – and partly because everyone was so fired up to make the production successful, that it was a self-fulfilling prophesy. Good luck in the Spokane area.

I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Marie Marx Strohm and her Hummingbird Productions for this kind of very difficult, artistic, and creative work. She handled the entire process with a positive “can do” attitude and had an absolutely winning way about her. If you have the slightest question about our experience with Marie Marx Strohm, please do not hesitate to contact me.

The hits and shares on FB are directly linked to the video that Hummingbird Productions produced for Meals On Wheels with lots of comments in conjunction with the Subaru of Spokane Share the love campaign.
I’ve worked with Marie Strohm and Hummingbird Productions on several video projects for Thunderbird School of Global Management. Marie and her team are consummate professionals with several years experience in video concepting, scripting, budgeting, production and editing. They provide high-quality videos and can work with almost any budget – even small ones. I would highly recommend Marie to anyone in need of developing impactful video content.
Kim Steinmetz Director of Marketing Thunderbird School of Global Management
So grateful for Marie Marx Strohm and the creative talent at Hummingbird Productions who helped the YWCA tell our story and raise nearly $700,000 to renovate our 100 year old safe shelter, expand the Women’s Opportunity Center, create a new Family Justice Center and build long-term financial stability for our agency. Our 2013 revenue was $154,422 and $191,033 in 2014, an increase of 23.7%! Looking forward to working with the Hummingbird team again this year and encouraging all of my non-profit executive friends to consider working them as well.

The level of professionalism Marie Marx Strohm and her team demonstrated in designing and producing our videos was amazing. Yet they combined this with a genuine warmth and passionate commitment which really empowered the faculty and students to be at their best during the filming. I would highly recommend Hummingbird Productions.
