What Keeps Lauren Running?

Wahoo Films produced this video for MEDIAmerica and Travel Oregon to put the spotlight on Lauren Fleshman, runner, and founder of Picky Bars. The video tells the runner’s unique life story, through narrative told by Lauren herself, action shots of her running in scenic locations across Central Oregon, and footage of her operating her business and taking care of her family.

I teamed up with Wahoo to produce a mini-doc profile of a star Oregon athlete. That required some care in terms of scheduling, clear communication, and delivering high-quality, polished footage. The entire Wahoo team knocked it out of the park and surpassed my team’s expectations. They collaborated with our editorial department to ensure the story was compelling and narrative-driven, and their management of the project was very hands-on. I’m excited to work together again soon!”
