A highly skilled, streamlined team of production hotshots dedicated to social change.


Over the years Connected Health Solutions has become an expert in the writing and production of 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. Not only do we employ modern, and less expensive, new media strategies that save resources by increasing efficiency, but also sound behavioral science that serves to motivate, inspire and result in a campaign’s desired effects.

Connected Health Solutions specializes in the art and science of changing behaviors. We have been hired to write and produce behavior change (social marketing) campaigns on PrEP, Mental Health, HIV secondary prevention, Teen Pregnancy Prevention, and more.

We’ve also produced stunning promotional videos for use in fundraising, generating awareness of services and educating professionals.

Branden Poe


Branden is a cinematographer and editor with experience creating a wide range of video content including documentaries, commercials, and music videos. His sharp eye for composition and knowledge of cameras and lighting work to bring stories to life visually. He received a degree in Biology from the University of Nebraska and has a deep appreciation for the natural world. He enjoys the outdoors as much as possible camping, canoeing, and hiking around the country.


James Weidner


James is a very 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 is 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. He works especially well with Joe and Branden and the three of them make a powerful triumvirate of youth-friendly film making monsters!
