Jonathan Hillyard

Owner, Director

Jonathan serves as the lead dreamer for the company, and is charged with trying to make us just a little better each day. On set, you'll likely see him directing cast and crew, making sure our clients are thrilled with the finished product.


He started his professional career in 2008 as a Video Editor for the Atlanta Braves and over the span of 10 years created content for both professional and collegiate sports organizations. His love for sports led him through stops at the University of Virginia and University of South Carolina before returning home to Atlanta to launch Connext Media in 2017.


Self-employment has allowed Jonathan to spend more time with his incredible family. He and his wife Erin have four amazing children and the most perfect chocolate lab in human history. They reside in Lilburn, Georgia. When not working or with family, you can probably find him at the driving range on the never-ending quest to break par for the first time.
