The Art, and Science, of Changing Behaviors

Over the years Connected Health Solutions has become an expert in writing and producing films designed to promote healthy behaviors and the agencies that endorse them. CHS Productions is a team of youthful, nimble production specialists who know how to keep contemporary audiences engaged. We employ modern and cheaper new media strategies that save resources by increasing efficiency while incorporating behavioral science that motivates, inspires and achieves results. 

We're not a typical production company. We take into consideration the limited resources of the nonprofit clients we serve. We've streamlined the production process to ensure only the necessary amount of time and funds are expended to produce our final products.

We’ve produced stunning promotional videos for use in fundraising, generating awareness of services and educating professionals. We work on a wide range of relevant and current social justice and public health challenges, developing campaigns addressing PrEP, mental health, HIV prevention, teen pregnancy prevention, and more.

James is an accomplished sound engineer and all around super fun guy. He has too many credits to list here but has his own IMDB page so need we say more? He's a top professional in his field but makes time and allowances to work on our projects with enthusiasm.

James has run sound on many of CHS’ MyMediaLife shoots and works beautifully with young and old people alike.
