Massive value. Plenty of personal (but not too personal) attention. Flexibility so…uhmm…flexible that we can accommodate practically any size project. Bet you didn’t think you could get all that from one partner. Well, guess what? We have no problem telling you when you’re wrong.
BIG & SMALL
As a nimble, mid-sized production company, we work with agencies and direct clients of every shape and size. We’d never turn up our nose at a massive budget (Can you imagine? “More money?! Never!”), nor do we sneeze at small ones (passion projects make us feel good inside).
NICE & EASY
We built our business on taking care of business, so you can trust us to keep calm under fire (even when pyrotechnics are involved). We’re responsive, responsible and respectful of you, your time and your budget.
FAR & WIDE
Our home base may be in Boulder, but we know and have worked with crew in pretty much every major U.S. market, as well as internationally (Europe, Canada, Asia and beyond). Wherever we go, we build or bring a team that will make the magic happen.
JED MORTENSON, BOSS
Jed said it: “If I don’t know the first name of everyone on my crew, I’ve made a huge mistake.” Quality connections clearly hold a lot of clout with this guy. No wonder he has so many friends.
Waypoint Films is owned and operated by Founder/Producer/Director Jed Mortenson who spent 15 years in L.A. before making the move to Boulder. Even more exciting, he’s worked with some of film’s finest, including—prepare for name dropping—James Cameron, Gale Anne Hurd and Jonathan Demme. Boom.
In the years since his dream job became a legit one, Jed has grown Waypoint into a massive network of trusted film and video production experts across the globe—from directors and DPs to editors and sound techs. Whatever your project, Jed’s in on it, so you know your baby’s being looked after by the best.
CARA NELSON, PRODUCER
Meet Cara Nelson, producer and all-around executional badass. She came to Waypoint fully loaded with 10+ years of legit experience in any and all things production. Live-action shoots and visual effects? Uh-huh. Animation and audio? You know it. Post production? Don’t make us laugh. That’s where Cara literally can’t be stopped—as if we’d ever try.
One of our favorite things about this mountain-loving Colorado convert (she got her start in LA) is that she’s more than just a producer. She’s an untiring creative. That means she knows what needs to be done and isn’t afraid to do it. With swagger. Our second favorite thing about her: the East-Coast-Southern (it’s a thing) buffalo wing sauce she sells with her husband on the side. Hire us and maybe she’ll sneak you a bottle. Just saying.
REBECCA OLSON, BIZ DEV
Rebecca is a production and post-production pro with a serious biz dev habit. Also, a near certifiable obsession with Maui (the island), yacht rock (the genre), and SciFi (the everything). She brings 18 years of experience to the Waypoint table — including a coordinator role at Imaginary Forces in LA and EP/Managing Director at Denver’s Spillt — and she uses it to reel in the new biz like a damn Alaskan angler.
When you want things done to a tee, you call Rebecca. No joke, she’s reallyinto detail. She even turns all the cans in her pantry to face forward, so it’s no wonder she’s so good at her job. Throughout her career, Rebecca’s pitched in on hundreds of commercials, corporate videos, music videos and network promos. And when she’s not working, she’s probably with her dogs. We’re pretty sure she likes them way more than us.
