My Story

The soul of every brand, every video, every live stream event is the story. And that's what I help professionals tell.

My name is Fritz Nordengren and I am an award-winning producer, digital strategist, and multimedia storyteller. I guide corporate and freelance digital media teams as they balance their strategic process and creative execution of brand-focused storytelling. 

Along the way, the projects I created for clients have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, and received awards and recognition from USA Today and the National Press Photographers Association. A project created for Iowa State University was named the 2020 American Marketing Association NOVA Best Video. 

Clients collaborate with me for short-term projects and longer contract roles.
