Dallas, TX (December 10, 2014) Fusion Productions, a leading award winning, international film and television production company based near Dallas, Texas in the United States, announces significant industry recognition as well as major production developments.
Founded in September of 1990, Fusion Productions has entered its 25th year of operation, completing hundreds of corporate projects, seven television series, numerous documentaries and the theatrically released feature film, Echoes of Innocence.

This year, Fusion provided support for the just completed 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games held in Veracruz, Mexico, saw its wild food series, Hot on the Trail with Sunny Savage, begin airing in the Middle East in addition to continued broadcast in the U.S., shot several projects for former Mexican President Vicente Fox, completed development of a motion picture script with Janine Turner (Friday Night Lights, Northern Exposure, Cliffhanger) attached to star, attended the MIPTV market in Cannes, France, and Fusion crews traveled to West Africa to the Ebola ravaged country of Liberia.
Liberia - Fusion’s Liberia project is a fascinating docudrama about one man’s unrelenting quest to save as many lives as possible, as fast as possible, in Liberia by solving the horrendous water situation left from years of civil war. Fusion crews have made two trips to Liberia in 2014 and while every attempt was made to prepare logistics and security concerns for production in the world’s second poorest country and most corrupt country (according to the CIA fact book), the production was blind-sided by the massive Ebola outbreak which exploded in the international media while Fusion was in Liberia shooting. All Fusion personnel were able to leave the country safely after completing a total of 15 production days, some in designated Ebola hazard zones. The Ebola crisis has now become a significant part of the project’s story and was instrumental in the decision to expand the length of the documentary. Completion is scheduled for early 2015.
