MDP Social Series: 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 who play a key role in Mectizan donation. 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.


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.


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.

BA Flying Start: a £20 million celebration

The delivery of a project shouldn’t be the end of the road for your footage.

To celebrate hitting £20 million in donations with their Flying Start campaign, British Airways commissioned us to make a compilation film using footage from all of the projects we’ve done with them so far.

Reusing footage reminds your audience of the incredible work you’ve done, while also maximising your return on investment for each project. This is a great example of how we’re able to incorporate our client’s own footage into re-edits.
