As the Executive Director of North 40 Productions, a digital media production house in Wenatchee, Jeff Ostenson is always drawn to a good story. North 40 Productions works with a diversity of clients “from fruit growers, non-profits, state agencies and Native American Tribes to ski areas and mountain bike trails.” (Read our interview with Jeff here).
Over the past nine years, North 40 Productions has produced an array of TV commercials, animations, motion graphics, documentary shorts, narrative shorts, and feature documentary films.
