About Changeworx

Changeworx is a New York-based media production company founded by award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Goodman Levitt in 2006. Changeworx creates character-driven media experiences for audiences, broadcasters, non-profits and brands that personalize social issues and motivate social change.

Changeworx films chart people’s lives as they unfold on-screen over time, often over multiple years. Known for a non-judgmental approach on a wide range of sensitive topics, Changeworx’s documentary work has been supported by over a dozen broadcasters internationally – such as BBC, PBS, and Japan’s NHK – and funded by Ford Foundation, Sundance Institute and Tribeca Film Institute.

Changeworx also collaborates with clients who seek to leverage our character-based storytelling expertise to create original content that serves their organizations and brands. We offer a full range of production services and creative consultation, supported by a network of specialized expert talent. Notable work for clients includes short films about an activist & her innovative work in Basra, Iraq, for National Endowment for Democracy; a film about transformational retreats for Sustained Dialogue Institute; and a film promoting renowned Jazz Bassist Marcus Miller’s album Renaissance.
