Using powerful storytelling tools to give voice to community stakeholders.
Meet The Problem Solvers is a weekly TV show and podcast created live at Cambridge Community TV. The show live-streams at 6:30 PM ET each Monday. Judy talks with experts from a variety of fields about a pressing social problem and its solutions. We started on July 1 and things are getting more and more interesting! Past episodes can be watched or heard as podcasts on our website:
Additional Video/Communication Services:
Working with videographer Quenton Thomas and other social media partners, we can help you create a video about a project, a process, or a person, expand your community's public input process using social media and video tools, and develop a communications plan to capture important moments of decision-making and change.
Judy and Quenton have a unique vision: grounding our story in the experiences of patients and practitioners.
As we work to integrate Physical Therapy into Trans/gender-diverse health care, Judy and Quenton have been there to capture the voices of patients, instructors, students, and providers. The video team's talent and vision is essential to our effort to share our insights widely and professionally. "

I first collaborated with Quenton, and cinematographer/friend Aaron Stowers, on a video project entitled, "Partnering to Redesign Community Services in Flint, Michigan."
The film documents the government’s shifting role in delivering important services including emergency home repair, youth recreation, and homeless contracts out to City residents. Our video team interviewed city residents of all ages, as well as city and community agency officials, about the purpose and results of the initiative. This experience led us to seek out new projects where we could bring our complementary skills and knowledge to bear. Our purpose is to give voice to many people, with varied perspectives, to flesh out the picture of a project or initiative.
In 2018, we collaborated on a film that highlighted a specialized course for Physical Therapists, providing them with skills and insight to improve health and wellness outcomes for transgender patients. Here again, the team drew on many voices – participants, instructors, and course originators – to bring to life this complex and meaningful work.
