About us

Steve and a child in Africa playing with a large camera

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 real people on the ground, who are driving change that were the most important.

Realising video could be used to challenge perceptions rather than reinforce stereotypes, 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 Framework

We like the Sustainable Development Goals because they lay the framework for the future well-being of our planet. Whether that’s in the UK or abroad – we’re all global citizens. They show how our footprint as an individual and the organisations we choose to work for makes all the difference. And these aren’t just our own values – ask any 20 year old what they care about and it’s not going to be a corporate manifesto.

1. No Poverty
2. Zero Hunger
3. Good Health & Well-Being
4. Quality Education
5. Gender Equality
6. Clean Water & Sanitation
7. Affordable & Clean Energy
8. Decent Work & Economic Growth

10. Reduced Inequalities
11. Sustainable Cities & Communites
12. Responsible Consumption & Production
