Our backstory:

Cloud9Media was born out of a trip to Africa where founding partner Steve Maud first got the bug for compassionate storytelling. Working with some of the biggest named celebrities, he soon came to realise that in spite of tear-jerking performances, it was the people behind the diseases, the “regular” people on the ground, who are driving change that were the most important.

Realising video could be used to help people think differently, he went on to assemble a team of like-minded aficionados, skilled individuals who were tired of the treadmill and wanted to make content that mattered.

And so our story began.

Our Philosophy

Cloud Nine Media conceive, shoot and deliver premium video content, driven by the need to help humankind join the dots.

In a world where trust in politics, corporations and charity is at an all-time low, we believe there has never been a greater need for people to work together, make good decisions and to live well. Whether that’s consumers, customers or staff – everyone has a role to play in making things better, wherever they are in the world.

That’s why we use the emotion of a story to bring people together, capturing the beating heart of an organisation to create genuine engagement with audiences.

Only then can we start to mitigate some of the bigger problems we’re facing in the world.
