New video: Saddle Rock talks like Wilf — who knew?

Admit it. That $8 million you’ve got stuffed in your mattress is lumpy and robbing you of sleep. Wouldn’t you feel better if you donated the whole kit-and-kaboodle (including the mattress) to the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust to buy and manage land in the Wenatchee Foothills? They could use the cash.

If you need a nudge in that direction, be sure to watch the Land Trust’s snazzy new video — “Saddle Rock” — which was made by North 40 Productions and narrated by this newspaper’s own publisher emeritus Wilfred Woods.

North 40’s video whiz Oly Mingo directed the visuals, which show lots of dramatic shots of Saddle Rock, a bustling Wenatchee and — what are those teeny antsy things? — people hiking on the Foothills’ trails.

Wilf speaks with a deeply resonant voice-of-God delivery, which convinced some of us to donate money and some of us to genuflect.

All in all, the video is a great effort by Wilf, North 40 and the Land Trust. See the 3-minute production at http://www.gowedia.com/videos/2013/mar/07/saddle-rock/#.UTkGX4Ure_U.
