(Hollywood, CA) - Music producer Ruwanga Samath is starting summer as one of the hottest producers in Hollywood. So far in 2011, Samath has produced the end title song for the Vin Diesel-propelled # 1 action movie of the year "Fast & Furious 5" (grossing over ¼ billion dollars worldwide); a mash up for Morgan Spurlock's documentary POM Wonderful Presents "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold"; scripting the theme for the History Channel's highest rated premiere of "Mounted in Alaska"; and providing the song "Break the Law" for TLC's "Unleashed: K9 Broward County", stamping Samath's The Birdcall Productions as this year's "go-to" producer of high-quality movie and television fare. It's his versatility that keeps him in demand for action movies, documentaries and reality TV, but Ruwanga Samath and The Bird Call Productions take music even further. Samath brings a unique element to hip-hop and pop music for the screen by working alongside cream of the crop icons such as legendary rapper Busta Rhymes; international superstar Don Omar and rapper J-Doe ("How We Roll," the end title song on "Fast & Furious 5")' and Outkast's Big Boi (with co-producers Matt & Kim on "Camera Buggin'," the end title song for "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.") His success is no fluke. In 2007, Samath won the prestigious LA Music Award for his work on the "Saw 4" movie soundtrack, (Collinz Room's "Just Another Day").
Ruwanga Samath founded The Bird Call Productions in 2003 at age 18. Since then, Samath has completed production for major artists such as Beyonce, Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland, Flo Rida, Ke$ha, Norah Jones, The Virgins, and more.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, The Bird Call Productions put together the song "Make it to the Sun" for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. The song, urging voters to use their vote to make a change, received widespread recognition throughout the campaign.
An avid gamer, Samath ventured into the video game world with placements on "The Agency" (Sony), which was nominated for a 2009 Hollywood Music Award. He also sat on SESAC's "Get Your Game On" panel for an in-depth discussion on the future of the video game world.
Hailing from Sri Lanka to parents who are still very involved in music -- His mother, Renuka, was a popular Sri Lankan musician-- Samath's compositions/tracks are unique and innovative. Sri Lanka is heavily influenced by the European and reggae scenes; filtered through an all-encompassing hip-hop, pop and R&B environment since his family's move to California in 1997, Ruwanga Samath has evolved a sound that now stands on its own.
The remainder of 2011 will see such exciting Ruwanga Samath and The Bird Call Productions releases that include "Mind the Gap" for the upcoming movie "The Good Fight", music for the new "Deal or No Deal" workout video and the Eric Roberts, Omar Gooding Christmas film "Christmas in Compton."
