About Us

Video Production Team

The name Wahoo elicits a sense of joy and excitement. Say it with me: Wahoooooo!

We believe great stories can make an impacting change on the world. To accomplish this, we focus on creating engaging videos that tap into the hearts and minds of your audience.

Wahoo Films has the expertise and creativity to engage your audience.

We take pride in producing compelling and highly targeted videos that connect with customers in an engaging and personal way. As a full service video production company, we work with a number of companies and nonprofit organizations who are looking for affordable and efficient ways to share their messages.

We are based in Bend, Oregon and have worked with clients nationally, including Oregon, California, Washington, Colorado, Florida, New York and beyond.

Michelle Alvarado – Owner & Director

It’s rare that someone finds their passion at such a young age and follows it dogmatically, unwilling to be diverted by adolescent whims. But just like her images, Michelle stayed focused. She got accepted at the USC Cinema and eventually landed a job at National Geographic/Sony, Monterey Bay Aquarium, BBC, and became a media teacher. For over ten years, she’s owned Wahoo Films. Michelle’s genuine passion for her clients is evident in the videos she produces for them.

Jen Rule – Project Manager

Jen is a rock climber who has faced 5.11s without fear. She brings this confidence and competence to every project. With a keen eye for detail, she ensures we deliver a quality product every time. Jen also assists in development, coordinates all crew and talent during production as well as ensure the video delivery is on schedule. Many believe Jen can do almost anything at our office. Once you’ve been to the top of the mountain, nothing is impossible.
