Mectizan Donation Program: Total Coverage
This film is part of a larger series we produced for the Mectizan Donation Program in which we detail the full history and journey of Mectizan pills. From the initiation of testing Ivermectin as a treatment for Onchocerciasis and on to the rollout of its distribution across the world, the series shares the success of a simple yet effective way to bring life-changing results to many millions of people worldwide.
In this, the 3rd film of the 5-part series, we highlight the pivotal role of Community-Directed Distributors. These volunteers ensure that members of their communities have constant access to treatment for Onchocerciasis and Lymphatic Filariasis, and reach some of the most remote parts of their countries in order to ensure these diseases can be eliminated.
We treated this particular episode like an action film, where CDDs are our hero. With fast and engaging montages we wanted to make sure the viewer is as impressed with these volunteers work as we are.
Digital Jane: Mortgage Originations
The original series created for FICO was so successful, we were commissioned to make a second series, helping script storylines that reflect the opportunities that FICO’s technology provide to customers and their consumers.
Using stock shots, we created a fictitious character, telling her story in a series of 6 chapters that explain how banks, insurance companies and 3rd party retailers can best interact with customers when and where it matters.
This film is featured on the FICO website, and this series was the ‘talk of the town’ at FICO World 2023, has become a great sales tool for FICO and has helped their software engineers appreciate the impact their work is having on the business.
FIND: Diagnostics Gaps
With diagnostics being essential in the delivery of healthcare, gaps in diagnostics prevent people from accessing the care they need. By accelerating access to testing globally in LMICs, FIND is closing these diagnostic gaps and transforming the lives of millions of people.
This film is a great example of the use of a combination of animation, stock and on-location footage. The result is an impactful short explainer that provides a clear overview of what can be a complex subject.
FIND At A Glance
FIND wanted a call to arms to engage a wide network of stakeholders in their mission to bring equal access to safe and reliable diagnostics around the world. Born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, which highlighted the inequalities between the haves and have nots, FIND now plays an important role in enabling diagnostics to be available where they’re needed most. With 50% of the world’s population having challenges when accessing diagnostics, the role of the company is critical to providing rapid and accurate diagnosis where it’s needed most.
With a snappy approach to simple graphics and some punchy music this film was created for the annual American Society For Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) event in Seattle in 2022, at which FIND‘s advancements and partnerships in innovation and implementation were showcased to the global audience of tropical and neglected disease experts. It has now become the opening film on their website.
World NTD Day 2023
Over a billion people are affected by Neglected Tropical Diseases globally. It takes an enormous amount of will, work, and cooperation to eliminate these diseases.
Created for the Mectizan Donation Program to celebrate the gains made in eliminating neglected tropical diseases on World NTD Day 2023, this film follows the story of Square Makwanda. A former coordinator of the Lymphatic Filariasis program in Malawi, Square managed to start a mass distribution program with very little resources. Included is a testimony from Professor Monique Dorkenoo, former Lymphatic Filariasis program coordinator for Togo. In her testimony, the doctor highlights the need for a plan and resourcefulness from health coordinators and workers. Together, they tell a powerful story about how one individual can make a difference and inspire the political and community will needed to deliver life-changing medicine where it’s needed most.
This is an example of a film made in close consultation with our client, with local resources, and using previously-filmed archive material and simple but powerful text to create a powerful message supported by imagery and music.
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 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.
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.
