W1N as one

It’s amazing what can be done with a zoom link and some good producing these days. Working with Nat Low our resident in-house producer, we captured the winning spirit that drives FICO’s salesforce, to be shown at an all-staff event.

Costa Foundation: Champion Stories

The Costa Foundation is the charitable branch of Costa Coffee, but raises all of its money from customer donations to carry out transformative work abroad. This film looks at how this extraordinary work is helping some of the world’s most disadvantaged children to achieve a better foundation in life. Motivated with a desire to give back to the communities that grow our coffee beans, the Foundation’s dedicated Store Champions have developed innovative ways to raise awareness and money for the vital work of the Foundation – building over 90 schools and 750 classrooms in 10 different countries across the world. Despite the strain placed on collecting donations by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Costa Foundation is determined to involve customers even further in its journey, changing children’s education and ultimately their lives for the better.

Associate Appreciation Week

Every year Associate Appreciation Week is a red-letter event for every member of Marriott’s 200,000 + staff.

In a bid to give a more democratic overview of what makes it great to be part of this large workforce we took our Instabooth to hotels in London and Frankfurt to capture the beating heart of what drives Marriott International.

Marriott: International Women’s Day

This short film part of a suite of films created for Marriott International to run on International Women’s Day this year. Brought from around the world, we interviewed three successful women from across the business at their luxurious Hyde Park Towers, to hear about their rise to power and the continued support they have received from this “family” based organisation.

Together We Can: Marriott Serve 360

With a large part of Marriott International’s workforce made up of young people, this global organisation has recognised the importance of pulling people together via their passions – for sustainable business, for driving change and having a positive lasting impact.

This film sits on their internal website reaching over 225,000 people.

Lead by CEO Liam Brown, using B-roll from a wider project for Marriott’s sustainability drive, and a simple graphic package.


Saving water in Kenya

Charity partnerships like the One Brand and World of Duty free are incredibly powerful – helping raise millions of pounds for long-term causes like clean water. To capture a bunch of people who have never been to this part of the world is rewarding in its own right.

Liam Brown: Welcome to Europe

Continuing our partnership with Marriott, Cloud9Media had the chance to make a film for Liam Brown, the new President and Managing Director in Europe for Marriott International, introducing himself to 43,000 associates.

Using a combination of fun, quick-fire questions and a more formal interview straight down the lens, we got to know Liam, from his vision for Marriott’s next chapter, to his guilty pleasures.

Working with a simple 3 person crew plus director, and the full participation of the fantastic St Pancras Renaissance hotel staff, we went to work capturing Liam in his element, doing what he does best – connecting with his people and bringing them together.

The gal-dem Pop-up Bookshop

To celebrate the launch of Michelle Obama’s new memoirPenguin Random House partnered with online magazine gal-dem to bring London a pop-up bookshop dedicated to championing women and gender non-binary people of colour.

With literature spanning countless genres of fiction and non-fiction, exclusively from women and gender non-binary people of colour, Cloud9Media were brought on board to document the shop’s creation with interviews with gal-dem’s founders and the bookstore staff bringing this project to life. The message of togetherness and shining a light on stories that are not often heard is core to Cloud9Media’s beliefs and made working on this project a truly rewarding experience.

Michelle Obama ‘Becoming’ launch

Michelle Obama’s new memoir ‘Becoming‘ was the best-selling book of 2018, and to celebrate its release Penguin Random House created a campaign that included retailers, murals, and newspaper front pages that culminated in a £5 staff sale of the book at all of their PRH sites across the country, with all of the money going towards the Advocacy Academy, a youth project based in Brixton.

Cloud9Media captured the festivities in a video to memorialise the event and celebrate Michelle’s story.
