Role of Public Health Informatics

When it comes to making films for our clients, getting to the heart of what makes them tick plays a central role within the narrative, helping us communicate the essence of what they do.

Fronted by the Public Health Informatics Institute‘s Executive Director, Vivian Singletary, this film delves deep into the company’s purpose whilst explaining their role in providing access to health informatics (the study of methods that help process & distribute patient data) so that public health professionals can improve lives.


Stamp Out Oncho Social Series

To support the Mectizan Donation Program’s Stamp Out Oncho campaign, and to compliment the longer films we have already produced for them, MDP commissioned a series of short social media clips. The intention behind them was to summarise different aspects of the Stamp Out Oncho story in bite-size films that could be easily distributed.

This is a good example of how our approach of using previously-shot footage, text graphics, and animations, enables us to repurpose existing content to breath new life into a campaign.


Neglected Tropical Diseases Showcase

Cloud9Media have been working within global health for more than a decade. This showcase brings together dozens of films that raise awareness for NTDs from projects spanning the globe.


Oncho and LF Elimination Roadmap

An overview of the roadmap travelled by the Mectizan Donation Program in its decades-long fight to eliminate onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis. Through the ongoing donation of Mectizan, communities who would otherwise have been ravaged by these debilitating neglected tropical diseases have seen lives changed through the simple administration of a yearly dose of much-needed medicine.

The fight to eradicate these crippling diseases such as onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis goes on, and is being fought by the MDP and its partner organisations at a global level, as well as on the ground through community networks. Together, their aim is to achieve the aims of the WHO’s 2021-2030 NTD Roadmap Goals.

As experts in global health storytelling, we’ve had many opportunities to hone our craft, and get to understand the realities on the ground that make for emotive stories which burst the bubble. Years of fine-tuning our approach to interviews, and the use of a trusted global network of local expert filmmakers, have enabled us to develop our approach and deliver video content that are compelling and deliver key messaging where it’s needed.

FICO Fraud & Financial Crime Portfolio

For over 25 years, fintech company FICO has created products that detect and prevent fraud for its client’s customers. FICO came to us to commission a film that explains how their fraud and financial crime portfolio achieves this whilst delivering consumer experiences that are convenient and secure.

This particular film uses graphics animation to show, in a simple way, some of the complex processes at play.


FICO Fireside: Behind the Scenes

With COVID-19 and social distancing, trying to film a fireside chat sounds like an impossible task. But when FICO came to us wanting to recreate the look and feel over a cosy two way chat via Zoom, we knew this was a challenge we could step to.

In collaboration with an agency in the US, we organised two remote shoots to happen simultaneously, one in San Diego and Michigan, all directed from our office here in London.


The Dance of AI

When the fintech company FICO requested a film that would kick their annual conference off with a bang, they took a leap of faith with this one.

And it paid off.

From commissioning two talented dancers, to bespoke music and a script that tied the evolution of AI to the present day, we created an art-piece that received standing ovations amongst a 1400 strong audience and established the metaphor of AI as a dance that became the central theme for this four day conference in New York.


Look Great on Camera Filming At Home

Let’s face it, a lot of us are still working from home, and may be for a long time. This doesn’t mean we can’t be outputting engaging and interesting video content. However, filming in a home set up can be daunting, especially when you have little experience. This is where the Cloud9 Filming From Home guide is here to help.

Covering everything from how to light yourself, sound, and tips and tricks to look professional in front of the camera, this comprehensive guide should be all you need to start producing video content, and look great while you do it.


What Did You Have For Breakfast?

Don’t be fooled – being interviewed is never easy.

So the key to getting someone comfortable in an interview is to not dive in with the hard-hitting questions. If your interviewee is nervous or not used to being in front of a camera, asking them basic questions and getting them chatting is the perfect way to warm them up. Our go-to?: what did you have for breakfast.

As it turns out, we’ve asked this a lot so we thought it would be a fitting tribute to a well-trod question to make a compilation of some of our favourite answers (with a few familiar Cloud9 faces!).


BA Flying Start – The Power of Sport

This is a longer Flying Start film used by British Airways internally to raise awareness for their massive fundraising mechanism, off the back of the in-flight film that is currently running on all long-haul flights.

For this film we went for life through the eyes of three British Airways cabin crew, and the two projects they visited in Sheffield and Johannesburg.

Seeing the world of others through the eyes of passionate champions for the brand is a great formula to share experiences and get people thinking along the same lines.
